Your Guide to the Food of Spain

Spain Maps + Infographics Food + Drink

If you’re traveling to Spain this summer, you might be dreaming about all the paellas you will eat, but you shouldn’t stop there. Paella is not really a typical Spanish dish, you need to go to Valencia to have the real one and not just something Valencians call ‘rice with things.’ The good news? Each region has its own specialty, so you won’t really miss paella.

This map, prepared by Travel Supermarket, shows what’s more typical to eat in each region — or at least something the region is an expert in producing and cooking, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re eating it every day! Don’t order a paella in Galicia, try pulpo á feira (octopus). Your mouth will thank you.
