World Tapas Day. Journey to the Flavors of Spain

Do you like delicious food? If so, June 15th is a very important day to mark on your calendar; it’s World Tapas Day! A day dedicated to celebrating this very special type of 'mini-cuisine' traditional from Spain, tapas aren’t only about the delicious food, but about 'tasting the moment’ while sharing it with your favorite people.

Tapas are more than just our gastronomic claim to fame, but part of our identity. As we know people from all backgrounds appreciate our tasty tapas, we want to share our culture with YOU!

World Tapas Day is celebrated in cities around the world, with a complete and uniform itinerary: tastings, cooking demonstrations, activities in local markets and more... A delicious plan!
