Tapas, as a philosophy of life!
An event that takes place every year and that values the gastronomy of ”la terreta” (as locals name the Valencian Community): More than 130 restaurants throughout the Valencian Community offer unprecedented creations in tapa format. With a closed price of €5 you can enjoy a tapa with a beer or glass of wine if you wish.
All the bars and restaurants in Valencia are involved in the event, promoting the gastronomy of the area and many have created unique tapas especially for the event.
