  • Mallorca’s tapas tradition started with La Crisis (Spain’s 2008 financial crisis), when a lot of people in Palma did not have much money. The bars were empty during the week. So, to boost business, the local bar owners of Palma met and came up with the “”Ruta Martiana””. The concept: affordable prices and one drink included with an order of tapas. From that moment, they never stopped the Ruta Martiana tradition on Tuesday evenings, and today you’ll find those once-empty bars filled with locals. But because we think tapas are great every night, we’re extending the tradition beyond just Tuesdays!

    Throughout the evening on tapas nights, little bars offer up delectable tapas and pinchos (a slice of bread with vegetables, fish, or meat on top), paired up with a tasty glass of Spanish wine or ice-cold beer. But the Ruta Martiana symbolises more than just eating and drinking. It signifies meeting old and new friends, checking out different bars, and sitting on lovely terraces — as well as eating delicious local food, of course! It is the most beloved Spanish dinner ritual, and you can’t come to Mallorca without trying it!

    On this Mallorca taps tour, we’ll walk the narrow streets of the old city centre to find the best tapas bars of Palma. Each bar has its own speciality, and we won’t stop until we’ve tasted the best of each place! Want to try the biggest tortilla in Mallorca? Or maybe taste some authentic Spanish jamón? Or how about a few divine fresh fish pinchos? The grilled rib lambs are perfection, too, so don’t forget those! For each tapas you order, you can choose a glass of local wine, cold beer, or soft drink.

    Too overwhelmed with choice? No worries, you can ask your local guide for some recommendations to help you make the most delicious decision!

    I spent a long weekend in Mallorca and booked the Urban Adventures tapas night in Palma for the first night. The tour was great with good company, good food and nice local wines. I also got a lot of information about Mallorca and great tips on how to spend the rest of my weekend. I would definitely recommend the tour to other travellers!
