Explore the best Algarve tapas with the famous Tapas Route starting this Friday

“Rota do Petisco” runs until October 15 in 176 establishments throughout the region

It’s almost time for Rota do Petisco (Tapas Route), one of the most popular gastronomic events in the Algarve.

To participate in the event, participants must purchase the event’s passport – which costs €1.50 and also serves as a guide –, and explore the 176 participating establishments’ tapas across the region, from Aljezur, Vila do Bispo, Lagos, Portimão, Monchique, Lagoa, Silves, Albufeira, Loulé, São Brás de Alportel and Tavira.

With the passport, participants have access to the entire route course, which includes different menu options, such as the Petisco Menu (tapas and a drink) for €4 and the Dessert Menu (dessert and a drink) for €2.50.

“The more tapas participants try, the more stamps they collect and the more chances they get to win prizes,” says Teia D’Impulsos, the association that organisers the event.

The event also offers other routes within it, such as the World Route, which features typical dishes from other countries, such as Cape Verde, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Turkey, India, Thailand, China, and Japan.

There will also be 15 establishments serving a Vegetarian Option at this year’s edition.

The passport can be purchased at the following establishments: Espaço Raiz, Portimão; Parish Council of Odeceixe; Parish Council of Vila do Bispo; Cultural Centre of Vila do Bispo; Lagos City Hall; Parish Council of Alvor; Tourist Information Office Portimão; Municipal Council of Monchique; Silves Archaeological Museum; Albufeira City Hall; Gama Lobo’s Palace, Loulé; Tavira City Hall.
