Spain is the healthiest country in the world. Much can be attributed to the Spanish cuisine, based on the Mediterranean diet, which is synonymous with health, longevity, and classified as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.

A wine and tapas tour Madrid will give you a new perspective of the city because there are two “Madrids”: the one you see, and the one you need a local to show you.

We invite you to enjoy the experience of “ir de tapas”, as madrileños do.

Taste the cured Iberian meat, the freshly fried calamari, the best “patatas bravas” and much more. If you travel for food, this experience is made for you!

SPAIN FOOD CULTURE

Some tourists observe the Spanish way of eating with curiosity, while others absolutely love it. But there’s one word that describes the most popular Spanish foods: Mediterranean.

The Mediterranean cuisine is known for its many ingredients. Typical meals feature fruit, vegetables, bread, pasta, nuts, rice, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, fish, seafood, various types of meat, yogurt, cheese, and, of course, wine. This varied diet is considered one of the healthiest in the world.
