Gastro Traveling: 5 Foodie Vacations for the Epicurious
Delicious locations and tips to help you plan your next gastro-trip.
From San Sebastian with its 16-Michelin star eateries, to Barcelona, with its 25 Michelin star restaurants, Spain is a must-visit-destination for the serious gourmand. Food channel personalities and celebrity chefs often debate whether Spain has usurped France as the number one foodie destination in Europe. Spain is known for tapas (aka. pintxos).

Tapas culture provides a laid-back alternative to sitting down for a white linen dining experience.

In fact, the food was the most memorable part of our visit to Spain, and considering how beautiful Spain is, that’s saying a lot!
