We are so accustomed to seeing tapas at all bars and restaurants in Barcelona that are going, which we do not stop to think about such things.
Unfortunately, the origin of tapas in Spain or tapas bars, is not entirely clear, so there are several options, we will see some of them.
Origin of tapas in Spain
One of the stories that supposedly give rise to tapas in Spain is the one that counts as the King Alfonso X the wise, due to an illness and by prescription, it was forced to take wine during a season. So the wine alcohol had less effect, began to take a small bite with each glass of wine. This seemed such a good idea that ordered to all guest to accompany a glass of wine with some chopping. And thus arose the first tapas in Spain.
Other stories about the origin of the caps has as protagonist to Alfonso XIII. Reported to have on one of his trips he stopped at an Inn to drink a glass of wine. By what is counted, then rose a very strong wind that filled all the local with dust and sand from a beach nearby. The waiter quickly reacted and "plugged" the glass with a slice of ham so that dust does not fit in the glass of wine.
Other possible origins of the cover in Spain, may be the fact that the farmers began to eat small portions of food between meals, accompanying these morsels with a little wine to relieve the cold of winter. This ended up as a custom, and went on to extend to bars, being almost an obligation snacks while drank a glass of wine.
As you can see, there are several stories and updates that tell how emerged tops in Spain. There are more stories, but with these we can already get an idea of how complicated it is to find the origin of our famous tapas.
