The Spanish gastronomic culture is one of our hallmarks. Our kitchen, year after year, becomes one of the biggest tourist attractions and a flagship of appeal. Without a doubt, the tapa is perhaps the best known of our gastronomy worldwide.
Spanish tapas find their origin in the time of Alfonso X el Sabio. The establishments were obliged to serve the wine with some food, which was “covered” in a glass or the jar to avoid that some unexpected visitor would end up in the wine.
In the PUIG CAMPANA RESTAURANT we celebrate every year on June 15, to give a quality touch to tapas in Cala de Finestrat.
