THE third edition of the Ruta de Tapa will be held in Huercal-Overa starting this Friday and runs until November 17. This edition will involve a total of 22 establishments in which participants can try more than 40 different tapas.
The Mayor, Domingo Fernandez, and the area councillor, Monica Navarro, presented details of this edition, among which are several new features. The first is that all participants who complete the tapas route will be put in a draw to win a weekend trip to Mallorca on a half board basis.
Another novelty is the app that the company Andriosfera created for the route. It can now be downloaded for Android through Google Play and Play Store. From there people can also vote for their favourite tapa and the bar with the best service.
This way it can be shared through social networks enabling people to find all the details of the participating establishments, such as location and contact details, besides presenting the tapas.
The mayor said: “Our cuisine is part of our tourism, and of course influences the wealth of our town , so we remain committed to improving this initiative , which has proved so popular among residents and visitors with a notable increase of activity in the bars with around 35,000 tapas being served in last year’s event.
