Tapas / pintxos
Tapas are one of the most famous culinary traditions from Spain - in the Basque Country, they are called pintxos, but it is the same culinary habit. These small snacks are very enjoyable and easy to find everywhere in Spain. They usually include Spanish olives, jamón Ibérico (cured ham), local cheese (such as Manchego, Herreño or Mahón), pimientos de Padron, albondigas (meatballs in tomato sauce) or anchovies.
