Bringing Food Lovers together in Palma
After the popular summer season less people are coming to visit the island and there are also less events or activities. With this gastronomic event, the organisers together with Restauración Mallorca, aim to extend the season by attracting people to Palma’s restaurants. Not only the local public, but also tourists.
The goal is to revitalise the city for a few days. But also to position Mallorca, and very specifically its capital, as a focal point of Spanish gastronomy. TaPalma each year offers new features and surprises, with a single objective. Increasing the number of visitors, as well as the quality and professionalism of the tapas and cocktails presented. The purpose of the tapas festival is to continue supporting a vital sector in the daily economic activity.
