...AND INTO THEN

In the mid-18th century, St. Augustine had more than 40 taverns! The Taberna del Caballo in the Colonial Quarter is actually two structures built atop the historic foundations of the de Hita House and the Gonzalez House. Both homes once belonged to cavalrymen and their families. In 1764, they became the property of the British.

BE PART OF THE SPANISH LEGEND

According to Spanish legend, the history of tapas dates back to the 14th or 15th centuries when a Castilian King, Alfonso the Wise, issued a royal decree insisting that everyone take tapas-style meals with their drinks to avoid brawls in eating/drinking establishments. “Tapa” literally means “lid” or “cover”.
