Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch? Granada is one of the last towns to offer a free tapas plate with every round of drinks, a once widespread practice throughout Spain. After ordering your alcoholic beverage of choice, the waiter typically chooses a portioned local dish, although in some bars you can select from a list.
Tapas crawls with friends is one of the most ingrained local traditions in Granada. Go for a stroll through the city, soak up its history, and indulge in the endless old-school tapas restaurants and bars. Plaza Nueva and the surrounding streets such as Calle Elvira and Calle Colcha are a great starting point that houses the town’s most popular spots.

If you’re a sucker for good food and drink, Granada’s tapas scene is one of the very best things to do in Spain.
