Tapas night in Granada is a famous outing for Spanish students to experience the culture of the city. Granada is one of the few remaining cities who serve free Tapas when you buy a drink. In definition, Tapa is, “to cover” It’s a form of snacking and it has been this way for generations, historically, it was known to be served with wine to offset the taste of wine. When the student studies Spanish abroad, they not only enjoy the taste of Spain, but also experience the historical landmarks of the city, and the very vibrant Flamenco dances.
