Tapas, Taverns & History Tour Image

TOUR SNAPSHOT:
This two-in-one tour gives you the very best of Granada’s tapas, along with the can’t-leave-without-hearing stories of its past! Learn to do tapas like a local as you make your way through Granada’s city center, hearing the stories of the Moorish occupation, to the Spanish Inquisition, to unheard tales of Granada’s Alhambra Palace, visiting four of Granada’s most unique and iconic family-run tapas bars and restaurants.

STOP BY STOP:
We’ll begin in a corner of the city that will transport you back to medieval Moorish Granada, and your expert English-speaking local guide will begin to tell you about life in Moorish Spain.

Next, we’ll hit our first tapas stop, a hidden wine and tapas bar open for decades and dedicated to keeping the flamenco culture alive in Granada (another aspect of local culture that has connections with the city’s turbulent history).

As we make our way through the charming back streets of Granada’s city center we’ll take you past the tourist traps and give you the inside track on how locals go out for tapas in Granada. Our next stop is for tapas at a gorgeous hole in the wall bar that has been serving a local favorite , fried fish, since the 1800s.

Continuing on, you’ll wind through the heart of this old Moorish and Christian city, discovering hidden monuments and famous landmarks – including the Cathedral, the old Moorish market, and the city’s most iconic squares, and hear the stories that bring this part of the city to life.

Next up, we’ll visit one of Granada’s most atmospheric tapas bars, entirely dedicated to the Holy Week, our Easter celebration and one of the most important weeks of the year for locals. Of course, accompanied by local beer and a tapa unique to Granada.

Our last stop for the evening is for a sit-down dinner in one of Granada’s most iconic and authentic local restaurants (and a favorite of the stars!) to feast on our favorite local dishes and Granada specialties, accompanied by wines from Granada’s own winemaking region.

By the end you’ll be happily full and have a deeper understanding of Granada’s food, culture, and history. And you’ll see how all three tie together into one fascinating story. And as always with Devour Granada tours, your guide will give you a copy of our Devouring Granada mini guide, packed with our favorite places to eat and drink in the city, so you’ll be eating well for the rest of your stay!
