Tinajo holds a Ruta de la Tapa every year. Local restaurants participate, and you can work your way around them, and enjoy an inexpensive tapa and a drink in them all. You’re then asked to vote on your favourite.
This year’s Tapas Tour in the municipality of Tinajo is back with a slightly different format as it will take place during every Thursday, Friday and Saturday during the month of June.
Each tapa and drink will cost €5 and when you vote for your favourite one you will automatically enter the draw of four vouchers worth €50 each.
