Seville is known for its high concentration of tapas bars so navigating the scene on your own could be a bit tricky but this tapas tour ensures you'll visit four of the best tapas bars in the world!
Legend has it that tapas were created in Andalusia, the region that is home to Seville. Tapa means "to cover" in Spanish and centuries ago it was necessary to cover cups of wine with pieces of bread or meat to prevent flies from crawling in. Tapas can be traced back to the 13th century when King Alfonso was cured of an illness by drinking and eating small meals so he passed a law stating taverns could only serve alcohol if they provided small portions of food as well. Traditionally each restaurant specialises in something different so you go to one place for cheese, another for seafood and another for tortilla española (Spanish omelette). In Spain you do not sit down for a whole tapas meal, like tapas restaurants in the UK, rather you hop from place to place, eating and drinking a bit and then moving on. Some places don't even have chairs - you just enjoy your tapas standing up and chatting to your friends.
