This old custom has survived for years and has been able to accomodate and incorporate the evolution of the new Granada cuisine, on of the richest of Andalusia, thanks to its big variety of products: coming from the sea, from land & mountain, all of them, essential ingredients in the spanish cuisine, like olive oil...& tasted with magnificent wines.
"Tapeo" which is the name under the spaniards, is going from bar to bar eating tapas. It is one of the best ways to know Ganada. Trying out the specialities, exploring the streets, discovering the monuments and, of course, the excellent food. It´s much more than having a beer, it is an art, it is something very close to the granadian way of life. Not getting to know what "Tapeo" means is to miss out the sirit of the people & their traditions.
The best areas in the city to enjoy tapas are Calle Navas, Bibrambla, Calle Elvira, Albayzin, Campo del Príncipe, San Matías or Alhamar.
