Why is it called an International Tapas Tour Malaga?
Over the centuries, the city of Malaga has been crossed and occupied by many regimes. Their influences had a strong impact on the development of Malaga and on its culture, customs, and gastronomy.
As a matter of fact, Malaga was founded back in the 8th century B.C. by the Phoenicians sailors, who left their sauces and seafood cuisine. After, under the empires of Carthage and Romans, the city introduced more elements, specifically olive and olive oils, in their recipes.
Going a step further, the long regime of the Moors introduced many new products, such as raisins, honey, saffron, nutmeg, and lots of other spices.
Then, in the XV century, the discovery of America had another great influence. The elements found from exploring the new land have been immediately incorporated into the Andalusia diet. For instance, tomatoes, chocolate, nuts, etc.
Later, with the advent of mass tourism, Malaga cuisine started to get more visibility and developed exponentially, becoming one of the most important in Spain.
Moreover, with the end of the Francisco Franco dictatorship and transition to the modern Spanish democracy, the government set several international goals for increasing its influence in Latin America. Thus, the reason is given by all the shared historical, cultural, and linguistic ties. Therefore, these events influenced gastronomy furtherly.
Taking into consideration all civilizations that crossed by in the city of Malaga, you may now imagine that its gastronomy is a melting pot of all the cultures and customs that passed by. So, we rely upon the fact that its gastronomy is internationally based. Join our experience and taste the internationality of Malaga!

The tapas tour phenomenon
As everyone knows, tasting tapas is a must-to-do while visiting Spain.
But maybe, you are still not aware of how this phenomenon spread out in the country!
Well, many are stories related, and one of them tells that everything started in Seville, where some bartenders offered small dishes with drinks to avoid clients getting drunk. In fact, the term “tapa” means “cover.”
They then realized that customers were increasing, curious about tasting new plates. Therefore, they introduced a greater variety in their offer, and this phenomenon got famous in the whole country and later on worldwide too.
In Malaga today you will be surprised to find tons of restaurants and bars offering a wide combination of dishes. In particular, we might suggest you, as a drink, enjoy a Tinto de Verano, which is a sweet mixture of red wine and lemon juice. It is super fresh and perfect to match the warm weather in the city!
Plus, for grabbing a bite you should taste the typical porra antequerana or the boquerones. Both are malaguenos specialties, and we are sure that will not disappoint you!
To round off your lunch or dinner, how about a dessert? We recommend trying the famous turrones, the churros with hot chocolate, or fresh ice cream!
