You can leave Spain with your case packed with culinary souvenirs to delight the palate. Some of these products you will find throughout the country, such as olive oil and wine, whereas others are typical of specific areas. In the north you could pick up a Tarta de Santiago cake and some anchovies from Santoña. On the central plateau, cecina (dried, salted beef) from León, morcilla (black pudding) in Burgos, and ham in Teruel. Some traditional local cheeses: manchego from Castilla-La Mancha, Mahón from Menorca, and Idiazábal from the Basque Country and Navarre. In the south you'll find alfajores, a sweet treat from Murcia and Andalusia. If you're looking for spices, there’s saffron from Aragon and pimentón (paprika) from La Vera.
