It was much appreciated amongst the guests present.The guests also tasted some Spanish tapas like patatas bravas, pinchos de pollo, lamb albondigas alongwith some Spanish red and white wines already available and sold in India.

The festivals of La Tomatina and Running of the Bulls (San Fermines) are already famous in India, but we have much more to offer, so come and enjoy, live and love Spain,” concluded Miguel Nieto-Sandoval San Segundo, the current director of the Tourism Office of Spain in India and Abu Dhabi who also announced that a new Director for India would take over in September this year.
