“Enyesque” is a small portion of food that is served to accompany drinks. So basically, it’s Canarian for “tapas”. This is a ruta de la tapa.

Ruta de la tapa

You can get each tapa and a drink (that can be water, a small beer or a soft drink – check for each establishments offerings) for only €3.

The booklets of the “ruta” are available at any of the participating establishments. Don’t forget to ask to get it stamped when you have each tapa!

The booklets with all the stamps can enter a draw to win a trip to Seville for two people. The draw will take place on the 27th of December at 20h where the musical “Teguise Encanta” takes place.

Also, new this year: Publish a photo of your favourite tapa on Facebook and tag @zcavilladeteguise on it. The most voted photo will win a dinner for two. The winner photo will also be announced on the 27th.

The “Ruta” is happening during the Christmas festivities in Teguise so remember that, in addition to the live music played in two of the participating establishments, there will be music and other events for the whole family in town, including the Christmas Fayre from the Friday 20th to the Sunday 22nd.
