“Bocata” is the Spanish slang for “bocadillo” and “butty” would be the closest in English. In this gastronomic proposal they actually range from sandwiches, rolls to even burger buns!
The principle of the tour is simple: the 9 different participating “bocatas” are priced between €5.20 and €9.50, including at least one ingredient produced locally and also a drink – usually a small beer, a glass of wine or a soft drink. The idea behind it is to promote both the establishments and the local produce in the area.
