Santiago de Compostela. Hotel Pazo de Altamira is a lovely, modern hotel within a gorgeous old Galician stone building. And it’s right opposite the fabulous market! 🤍 10. Jerez de la Frontera. Definitely try and stay at the famous Hotel Casa Grande - a big old mansion with a gorgeous rooftop terrace for drinks - 🤍 9. Vera Valley. I would suggest staying in the village Valverde de la Vera and my pick is the cosy and rustic La Picota: 🤍 8. Cadaqués. I love Tramantua Hotel, a white-washed gem run by a husband and wife team… service is fantastic, and it’s right in the old city, plus near the beach: 🤍 7. Cáceres. We stayed at the budget but good Hotel Iberia Plaza Mayor with views of the square): 🤍 If you want to stay IN the old city though, the Parador here is a 14th century palace - the full Caceres medieval dream! 🤍 6. Oviedo. Prices in Northern Spain are often cheaper, so you can happily get a great hotel here without spending a lot. Check out the excellent Barceló Oviedo Cervantes: 🤍 5. Zahara de los Atunes. Either go with Hotel Avenida Playa (simple, clean, and right off the beach - 🤍 or the slightly more chic Hotel Doña Lola - 🤍 4. Las Alpujarras. Casa Rural la Fragua is a gorgeous little tucked away whitewashed apartment in Capileira (either stay here or in Pampaneira). This place is perfect for exploring the villages around the area. 🤍 3. El Rocío. I love Hotel La Malvasía with its old-world luxury, the fact it’s only a 5-minutes walk from the famous Santa María del Rocío church and they also have a terrace which is perfect for sunsets. 🤍 2. Mejorada del Campo. Bus info: 🤍 (take the bus from Conde de Casal). Don’t spend the night there. It’s a day trip. But my favourite Madrid hotels are below (in descending price order): Pestana Plaza Mayor (right on Plaza Mayor and with a pool) - 🤍 Gran Hotel Inglés - 🤍 The Pavilions - 🤍 Vincci The Mint - 🤍 7 Islas - 🤍 1. Cádiz. Right in the old town, I love the wonderful Hotel Boutique Convento Cádiz, housed in a renovated 17th century monastery: 🤍 WHO ARE WE? 🥝 ⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯ Hola, Spain lovers!

And in fact, sometimes I think it might be my first love! When I moved to Madrid I fell in love with the city's history. While the Spanish capital may not be the oldest city in Europe, it was much older than New Zealand! And it was full of so many wonderful stories of intrigue, had been the home of so many fascinating people, and the centre of so many dramatic events in Spanish history. So in this walking tour - which is based on the tour I designed when I designed Devour Tours' most popular Tapas, Taverns & History Tour - I take you through the history of Madrid, starting at the beginning and right up to the civil war. Here are the places we stop: 1. Plaza de Oriente: Location of Madrid's royal palace and the spot where the city was founded! 2. Plaza de Ramales: Where Spain's most famous painter - Diego de Velazquez - may be buried! 3. Calle del Factor: Gorgeous views of the cathedral, the Royal Palace and the Casa del Campo (the old royal hunting grounds, now an enormous public park). 4. Calle de la Almudena: The admittedly not so impressive remains of an old church. But I love the statue of the Curios Neighbour, and also knowing that this was the former location of a mosque. 5. Calle de San Nicolás: Love this little hidden corner with Madrid's oldest standing church from the 12th century (and which potentially is the site of a former mosque 6. Plaza de la Villa: Once the most important square in the city! 7. Calle del Codo: Love this tiny little hidden street - also the location of the famous cookie nuns! 8. Plaza Puerta Cerrada: Right at the top of Calle Cava Baja (tapas heaven!), and where the famous motto of Madrid can be read on the walls - "Over water my walls of fire are built." 9. Plaza Mayor: The city's main historic square - site of inquisition trials, bull fights, fires and the Christmas market. 10. Puerta del Sol: The people's square! Home of protests, uprisings and New Year's Eve celebrations! 11. Casa del Abuelo: Amazing garlic prawns, cooked right before your eyes! 12. Plaza Santa Ana: A gorgeous square surrounded by cafes and bars, and with my favourite statue in Madrid of Federico García Lorca. 13. Calle Lope de Vega: The final resting place (we think!) of Spain's most famous author - Miguel de Cervantes (author of Don Quixote) WHO ARE WE? 🥝 ⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯ Hola, Spain lovers!

What NOT to do in Spain! I’ve lived here for 8 years with Yoly my Spanish wife, and I’ve learned a lot of the do’s and don’ts of this culture.

It’s also a pretty easy going one. But there are certain things that you just don’t want to get wrong. And here they are! 11. Don’t go OTT on please and thank you. In Spanish we just don’t use the words as much. We are more likely to work ‘please’ and ’thank you’ into the tone of how we speak, or by tweaking the words (such as adding “ito” to the end of a word). 10. Don’t put bread on your plate. In Spain, you always leave your bread beside your plate on the table. It sites beside your cutlery, because it kind of is a piece of cutlery. 9. Don’t eat with your hand under the table. I grew up with no elbows on the table. But here in Spain we also have the rule that you should have your hands above the table at all times. Because you might have a knife?? 8. Don’t offer guests a beer at 5pm Because we eat lunch and dinner later, beer o’clock is usually about 8pm… not 5pm. 7. Don’t help with the dishes after parties. It’s just not something that’s done here. At the end of a party or dinner party, you might help tidy up slightly, but you don’t help do the dishes. 6. Don’t be a ‘pesado’ in social situations. Chill out! Don’t ask people what their job is straight away when you meet them in a social setting and don’t expect people to cut to the chase when telling a story - we take our time here! 5. Don’t misinterpret loud conversations. When Yoly speaks with her mother on the phone, it can get heated. But they’re not arguing - it’s just that conversations here often sound more intense. 4. Don’t generalise about Spain. This is a highly regional country. So don’t assume that every region of Spain has the same language, customs or food. 3. Don’t call Catalan a dialect of Spanish. Catalan is its own language - and don’t get that wrong (especially when speaking to a Catalan) 2. Don’t used ‘usted’ willy nilly. Here in Spain we’re pretty informal and so don’t use “usted” unless we’re speaking with older people or in very formal situations. 1. Don’t mention the civil war casually. The Spanish civil war and the dictatorship is a really complex topic, and still an open wound in Spain. So wait until you know someone pretty well before diving into the topic.

Often when people think of Madrid they think of museums and art and maybe a trip to Toledo. But trust me, this city has an incredible food scene that is less touristy and more underground compared to some other cities in Spain. So, I wanted to make this Madrid food guide so that you can enjoy it like a true local! Today I take you to 10 of my favourite places to eat 10 incredible bites. We start with the best chocolate in the city (melted from actual chocolate) at an over 100-year-old pastry shop. Then we head to a local and hidden family-run joint for the city’s top Spanish omelette (tortilla española) and a beer (caña). Next up! Vermouth time. We nip across to the San Miguel market for a sweet red vermouth on tap just like the locals do (along with marcona almonds, campo real olives and a local skewer). Then we head to a SECRET STOP. Cloistered nuns who bake cookies in - the cookies are delicious and moreish and the experience is truly one-of-a-kind. As a friend used to say, like doing a drug deal! OK… getting full. Next stop - jamón… ham! And the good stuff - acorn-fed jamón ibérico in a family-run ham shop. Around the corner we head to an over 100-year-old tapas bar for one of the most delicious tapas in the city - bull tail stew parcel, paired with a Rioja wine. Next it’s Madrid’s most famous bite - the calamari sandwich. There are so many places that do this, but we head for the best one! And for more seafood, we swing around into the La Latina neighbourhood for the best bacalao in the city, served with a white wine in a place that is a true Madrid rough-and-tumble tapas bar. And then - tapas. We swing into Casa Toni, a fantastic tapas bar that does brilliant sweetbreads - mollejas - a delicacy in many restaurants around the world, and here deliciously cooked with skill on the griddle. And finally, dessert … we head to the most famous pastry shop in the city for the napolitana de crema. The perfect sweet end to a fabulous Madrid food tour. Siesta time! Want to find those secret nun cookies? Head to Calle Codo (near Plaza de la Villa) and where you see the door with the sign "Venta de Dulces", ring the top bell. Hours are Mon-Fri 0930-1300 then 16.30 - 18.30. Here's the list of where we went: 1. El Riojano 2. Cerveriz 3. Mercado San Miguel (La Hora del Vermut was the stall) 4. Nuns 5. Mercado Jamon Iberico 6. Anciano Rey de los Vinos 7. Casa Revuelta 8. La Campana 9. Casa Toni 10. La Mallorquina WHO ARE WE? 🥝 ⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯ Hola, Spain lovers! We're James and Yoly.

What's Wrong with Spanish Coffee? 😥☕

Something is very wrong with Spanish coffee. If you buy a pack of coffee in the supermarket, or a café solo in a bar, it too often tastes like acrid burnt rubber. Want to know why? In this video I delve into the mysterious world of torrefacto!

But it never tasted very good. It always had this acrid, bitter flavour. I drink my coffee black, and I found the stuff I was buying and drinking in bars almost undrinkable. It was like burnt rubber. And then one day I looked a little closer at the coffee packet. And I noticed this common word, “mezcla”. I knew that mezcla meant mix or blend. But I thought - a blend of what? So I read further, and then I started seeing this word “torrefacto”. I had no idea what it was, but I suspected it had to do with what was going on with the coffee in this country. So I started investigating further, and I discovered that torrefacto is a process that is applied to coffee beans sold in Spain that make the coffee taste, well, horrible. How the tradition got started is connected to the civil war. And why we still drink torrefacto coffee in Spain is about tradition, and, well, habit. In this video I explain what torrefacto is, do a taste testing with my wife Yoly, and head to Toma Cafe to get a good cup of coffee!

The pintxo bars in this city are incredible. But the historic centre can get really busy. So in this video, my Devour Tours co-founder Lauren and I head to the neighbourhood of Gros (only a 10 minute walk from the history centre) and visit 9 of the best local pintxo bars there. At each of the 9 places we try the specialty pintxo - everything from foie, to anchovies, to cured pork belly, to cod, to the most amazing fresh tomatoes and even dessert. And in each of the 9 pintxo bars, we’re largely surrounded by locals. So this gives us a great insight into the true local pintxo culture. I give lots of tips for how to navigate a pinxto bar. And I also show you all the local drinks you should be enjoying with your pintxos. From the local white wine Txakoli, to super dry Basque cider to Rioja (from just 2 hours north), you’ll really get the low down and what drinks to pair with your pintxos!

Cava Baja is Madrid’s most famous tapas bar street! It’s in the La Latina neighbourhood and has about 50 tapas bars in only 300 metres! But how do you avoid the tourist traps. Come with us and we’ll show you the 7 best tapas bars on Cava Baja! Including Taberna La Concha, Casa Lucas, La Posada de la Villa and more!

It’s got about 50 tapas bars in just one street, and is in the heart of the famous La Latina neighbourhood. But with so many tapas bars, how can you pick the good from the bad? That’s where this video comes in? Yoly and I decided to hit 7 of our favourites. Here is Calle Cava Baja on a map: 🤍 1. Taberna La Concha: I love this spot for a pre-lunch vermouth. They make their own vermouth, and serve it with a few extra ingredients to give it extra kick. They always pair it with a delicious tapa. And their cooked tapas and wine list are also excellent. A great start! 2. Diaz y Larrouy: The wine bar has been around since 1992 and so is one of the grandfather’ of this street. They have 30-40 wines per glass, and serve delicious tostas. An excellent option for cava by the glass. 3. La Posada de la Villa: There has been a posada (or inn) here since 1642, and I adore hitting the bar in this old tavern. It’s more of a restaurant, but the bar is a great place to grab a glass and even just enjoy the free tapa. It’s just full of history! 4. La Posada del Dragón: These guys do more modern tapas, and I love their tomato salad. But beyond the food, this place is extra special as beneath the glass floor you can see the remains of the medieval walls that once surrounded Madrid. Honourable mention: La Perejila - great little tapas bar that just didn’t make the final cut. 5. Casa Lucas: Famous on Calle Cava Baja. This place is always packed, but does delicious modern tapas and tostas, and they have an excellent wine list. Don’t worry if you can’t get a table - just squeeze on up at the bar! 6. Taberna Tempranillo: Another classic wine bar that’s been around for a number of years. These guys do an eclectic selection of modern dishes, as well as tostas. And of course great wine by the glass. Also - the wine rack against the back wall is spectacular! 7. Los Huevos de Lucio: Opposite is a famous restaurant called Casa Lucio. And in that restaurant they’re famous for their huevos estrellados (aka. Huevos rotos or broken eggs). Opposite Los Huevos de Lucio is their tavern, and you can get the same dish there. It’s simple, but it’s delicious! WHO ARE WE? 🥝 ⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯ Hola, Spain lovers! We're James and Yoly. James is a New Zealander, and Yoly is from Spain. And we both live in Madrid.

It gives you a real insight into the local diet, and the local culture. So Yoly and I decided to dive into the massive supermarket in the outskirts of Madrid to give you guys an insight into what's there. We check out Spanish potato chips, the massive selection of jamón, lots of interesting meats (blood sausage, rabbit, pigs' brains and snout and more), cheeses, more cured meats and so much more. But beyond that, we also dove into the frozen food section to see what we could find (yes, we found frozen paella in Spain!). And we also explored the enormous olive oil section, with everything from normal olive oil, right through to extra virgin olive oil (which is pretty cheap in Spain!).

But there are so many tapas bars that the challenge is knowing exactly where to go! I love a lot of the tapas bars in the old centre of Madrid, but I also love to escape into the local neighbours where the locals eat - because that's where you can find some truly spectacular tapas. If I were going to write a Madrid travel guide, it would definitely include a lunch or dinner of tapas in this part of town! In this video my wife Yoly and I dive into the Ibiza neighbourhood, which is REALLY close to the old centre (quick metro or short walk) for five of my most favourite tapas bars in all of Madrid. If you love Spanish food, this is the video for you! We eat plump prawns, slow-cooked bull tail stew, scallops, artichokes, venison, partridge, fresh fish... I could go on and one. And of course we pair it all with great Spanish wine! I've included info below on how to get to this area. And remember - you don't need to reserve a table at any of the bars. Just turn up and hit the bar! You can reserve a table for a slightly calmer experience... but I'll leave that up to you! HOW TO GET TO THESE BARS The neighbourhood is called Ibiza (yes, just like the island!), and so you should head to Metro Ibiza (line 9). Alternatively, the neighbourhood is just on the other side (the east side) of the Retiro park. So one idea is to walk across the Retiro before lunch and then hit these bars. Or, take the Metro to Ibiza and then you can sleep it off (or walk it off) in the park afterwards! Or... another idea is go to the Prado Museum during the day, and then wander across the park and hit these bars for dinner. WHO ARE WE? 🥝 ⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯ Hola, Spain lovers!

It’s an incredible food city. And recently we launched our first Devour Tour there - our Tastes & Traditions of Lisbon Food Tour. And to celebrate it, I decided to make a video along with Ellis Dixon, our wonderful local operations manager and Lisbon expert. Get ready, because this Lisbon food tour is delicious! So, where did we go? 1. Confeitaria Nacional: This place has been open since the early 1800s and it’s a fantastic place to start your day - a bica (espresso) and a pastry surrounded by gorgeous turn-of-the-century decor. 2. Ginjinha Sem Rival: I love this tiny little shop where you can get a bottle of Portugal’s famous cherry liqueur - and also take a shot of it at the bar. This place has been going since 1840! 3. O Trevo: You have to eat a bifana sandwich when you’re in Lisbon. It’s simple, but delicious - stewed pork, and then you douse it in piri piri sauce and yellow mustard. And this was the place Anthony Bourdain visited! 4. Casa Pereira: I love how this old shop smells like coffee, tea and chocolate. And the walls are lined with incredible bottles of port. So if you want to grab a bottle of port while in the city, this is your place! 5. Trobadores: This place is straight out of Game of Thrones. And despite seemingly a little tacky, it’s actually a place locals come to. You can drink mead (fermented honey) and grill chorizo sausage right at your table! 6. Bonjardim: Piri piri chicken is famous, and if you’re going to get it in Lisbon (and you should), this is the place! The chicken was so deliciously juicy, and the skin fabulously spicy. 7. O Gaiteiro: I love a good old school restaurant. And in Lisbon these tascas the best spots to order grilled fish: sardines, salt-cold and octopus. O Gaiteiro is a place we visit on Devour’s Lisbon food tour and it’s fantastic - great food, full of local clients. 8. Sol e Pesca: This former fishing shop still looks like… a fishing shop. Apart from the enormous display of canned fish. And please, don’t be afraid of canned fish - it can be absolutely delicious, and this is the place to try it! 9. Manteigaria: Custard tarts are everywhere in Lisbon, but not all custard tarts are created equal. These ones from Manteigaria have a wonderfully crispy and flaky pastry, and custard is like delicious molten lava. A plus, you can watch them making them through the glass window.

Explore 5 of Madrid’s MOST historic restaurants & taverns - including Botin, the oldest restaurant in the world! In this video I reveal hidden underground wine caves, tell stories of royal assassination attempts and even eat bull tail stew in a bar right below where Cervantes wrote the second part of Don Quixote! Venga, let's go! 🥝 ⏩ Watch Next: Eat Like a Local in Madrid: 🤍 MY FREE SPAIN RESOURCES 🍤 Tapas 101 Cheat Sheet: 🤍 🏡 Spain House Buyer's Checklist: 🤍 🔑 Spain House Renter's Cheat Sheet: 🤍 ENHANCE YOUR SPAIN TRIP 💡 Get my ultimate Madrid city guide: 🤍 🥘 Book a food tour with Devour Tours: 🤍 🏰 Book a walking tour with Walks: 🤍 JOIN OUR EXCLUSIVE LIVE STREAMS ❤️ YouTube members get exclusive live stream access: 🤍 🍤Spanish food delivered to your door (USA): 🤍 👄Learn Spanish my way: 🤍 🎥The gear we use to make our videos: 🤍 👩🏻‍💻CONNECT James on Instagram: 🤍 Yoly on instagram: 🤍 Our private Facebook community: 🤍 MORE ABOUT THIS VIDEO 😃 ⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯ When I moved to Madrid, I fell in love with two things - the history and the food. And over the years I’ve loved spending time in places that combine both… taverns & restaurants that are absolutely dripping with history and atmosphere. In this video, Yoly and I take you to 5 of my favourite historic restaurants and tapas bars… and not only do we eat the food, but also I tell you the stories behind these remarkable places that we’re so lucky to have on our doorstep! ▶ Books I mention in the video DON QUIXOTE: 🤍 FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS: 🤍 1. First we visit Taberna Antonio Sánchez, which is actually the oldest still-running tavern in the city (not to be confused with Botin, which is the oldest still running restaurant in the world). This place has the most remarkable decor that hasn’t changed since the 1830s. And downstairs is a fascinating hidden wine cellar. 2. Then we head into Madrid’s Literary Quarter to Casa Alberto. These are the streets Miguel de Cervantes’ famous author of Don Quixote lived in. And they’re wonderful to wander. Casa Alberto is always heaving, and it’s perfect for a quick vermouth, or something a little more substantial… like the bull tail stew we order. 3. Next up it’s Taberna La Bola, where we get a special behind-the-scenes visit to the kitchen, where they make their famous cocido madrileño stew the old fashioned way - in clay pots and on a charcoal stove. It’s a huge feast, but it’s worth it! 4. Casa Ciriaco is part bar, part restaurant… and it’s always heaving. I love hanging out in the tapas bar area and sipping on wine, or heading through to the restaurant where it just screams old Madrid with its photos of famous guests. 5. The grande finale! Restaurant Botín… aka Sobrino de Botín. We see the 300-year-old oven, explore the four magical floors and then sit down in Hemingway’s table for a plate of incredible roast suckling pig. A once-in-a-lifetime experience! Have you visited any of these places? Did you enjoy the experience? Let me know in the comments! WHO ARE WE? 🥝 ⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯ Hola, Spain lovers!
