The extensive and diverse gastronomy of Seville is found in the unknown and secret home cooking. Its greatest exponent is the “tapa”, a tasting of small dishes which are usually shared by a group of people; to know the authentic cooking of Seville, you have “to pick at” the extensive and diverse assortment of specialities that bars and tapas present you.
With this kind of snack, a drink, normally wine, was required to be served in winter because it helped to face the cold. Of course, the fresh and golden beer can not be left. Enjoy your tapa!.
