Historical tapas in Guardamar

Enjoy tapas with a medieval theme for just €2 with a drink until November 6th Have you had enough of tapas yet? Of course not, there’s always room for one more and Guardamar del Segura has its own tapas route on until November 6th, one with a medieval twist. The event is promoting the municipality’s medieval heritage and this is supposed to be reflected in the dishes on offer. There are 20 different bars and restaurants, each offering a different tapa (see flyer below). These are all available for €2, including a beer, wine or soft drink. You can also get a free tapa and a drink in exchange for one of the limited number of ‘Conoce Guardamar (Get to know Guardamar) vouchers, which can be obtained from any of the seven participating local shops (see other flyer below) on request, while stocks last. Collect stamps on a flyer from six different places to vote for your favourite tapa and you could win one of six €50 vouchers to spend in local shops. The flyer also has some interesting information about local history but the translation is a bit iffy so we’ve taken the liberty of including our own version below: Guardamar has its roots in the Middle Ages, since it was founded by King Alfonso the 10th. Over the course of the 14th century it grew in importance...
