The Fiestas de La Paloma in August are a great opportunity, not only to enjoy its complete program of activities, but also to enjoy traditional gastronomic dishes and delights that, although you can taste all year round, make more sense in these festive days .
The squid are, without a doubt, one of the star dishes of Madrid’s cuisine. The “calamari sandwich”, as they say in Madrid, became a classic of the gastronomy of the capital. Of course, in the Elder King of the Wines we are no stranger to it and in our tavern you can enjoy our Roman squid.
