If there is one thing the Spanish love, it's their jamón, shown here, hanging on racks ready for purchase!

Much Spanish cuisine is heavily influenced by the locally available seafood.

Calamares fritos (you guessed it, fried calamari) is a common Spanish tapa.

Glasses of refreshing gazpacho soup, a chilled and blended mix of tomatoes and other raw vegetables.

An assortment of Spanish olives, some of the most flavorful in the world.

Traditional Spanish seafood paella.

Tortilla española, or a 'Spanish omelet,' is a traditional dish made with potatoes, eggs and olive oil.

Jamón serrano, chorizo and olives are universal Spanish favorites, common in all regions of Spain.

Flan de huevo al caramelo, a caramel-topped Spanish dessert.

Chocolate con churros (hot chocolate and strips of fried dough) isn't like any other hot chocolate. It's so thick you can rest your spoon (or churro) on it!

Arroz con leche, a Spanish rice pudding.

You can't forget Spanish sangria, but watch out for that fruit! It's loaded with more wine than you think.
