The Indalo aside, now ubiquitous in Ameria, the city offers so much to see, do and enjoy. Moreover, as it has been named the Gastronomic Capital of Spain, the list of activities is enhanced by the special culinary events scheduled for 2019.

"Since moving back to the states, I've had to rely on hotels and apartments for lodging when in Spain. I often opt for the latter, finding it nice to have a kitchen to prepare greens after a day of eating my all beige Spanish comfort food - croquetas, tortilla, patatas ali-oli, churros and natillas con nata.
