Erotic Tapas Route in FuengirolaOn the 4th November 2016, our neighbouring town of Fuengirola kicks off the 8th edition of the “Ruta de la Tapa Erótica” (Erotic Tapas Route), a simple and original idea which, since the first edition, has become a reference all over Spain.

Up until the 20th November, visitors to Fuengirola will be able to enjoy this traditional Spanish snack, with a slightly “spicy” touch. This year, the route sees 101 different establishments take part, each preparing a sensual and fun tapa, with creativity and flair being the main ingredients. This year, four of the participating establishments will be offering special ‘gluten free’ tapas and beers.

Anyone who visits one of the participating restaurants or bars will be able to sample one of these “erotic” tapas and a cool beer for a – very reasonable – €2.50. If you choose one of the sweet dessert tapas available in some establishments,  you can choose to accompany it with a coffee, tea or sweet wine.
