A Taste of Tapas in Cartagena

Take advantage of your time in Cartagena and experience Spanish tapas, no matter what your taste buds prefer: sweet, salty, traditional, or innovative. Have a taste of the typical products of this Mediterranean region and Murcia in this magnificent city and discover what has become a hallmark of the Spanish culture.

As you begin your walking tour, you will appreciate the rich history of this port city. Everyone from Hasdrubal to the Phoenicians, Romans, and Moors used Cartagena for its natural deep-water harbor. The city walls remained intact until the beginning of the 20th century, creating a dense historic center. You'll see highlights like the Consistorial Palace, Calle Mayor, the Gran Hotel, and more.

Be accompanied by a professional, knowledgeable guide who can give you the history of Cartagena from a historical prospective, as well as inform you of the cultural and gastronomy side of the city.

Several stops will be made during the visit to taste typical Spanish tapas; a real pleasure for all senses.

Don't miss this opportunity to immerse in true Spanish culture and the tastes of Cartagena!

The tour started slowly, but once underway it blossomed into an educational wonder. The Tapas tasting took place during the later portion of the tour which beautifully capped a most pleasant tour. Our guide Maria del Mar Martinez, knowledge and love of Cartagena made the tour an absolute joy. It was three hours well spent and was sorry to see it end. Much of that I attribute to the competence of Ms. Martinez.

We weren't sure what to expect in Cartagena, but were pleasantly surprised by the rich history and beauty of the town. Our tour guide was a young woman who had lived her whole life in this city, and was eager to share its story with us. She was wonderful! The tapas we sampled were delicious, but the sangria was definitely a premade mix (we found much better sangria after our tour). All in all, an excellent experience.

Our guide provided great information about Cartagena while we walked the city to the different tapas locations. He helped along the way with additional questions. The tapas we had were excellent and liked the places we went.
