Ibero-America – the territory in which Spanish or Portuguese is spoken and which includes Spain and Portugal – is one of the world’s great gastronomic and tourist destinations, rich in native products and traditional and avant-garde recipes.
Madrid is connected to major Ibero-American destinations that serve as designated Capitals. Cases in point are Mendoza (Argentina), the Capital of Gastronomic Harmony, where wine is the protagonist; Puebla and Querétaro (Mexico), the Ibero-American Capital of Gastronomic and Encounter Cultures, respectively; and Asunción (Paraguay), the Capital of the Missions.
Rafael Ansón Oliart, President of the Ibero-American Academy of Gastronomy.
José Antonio Vidal, President of the Global Wine Tourism Organization and Spanish Wine Tourism Organization: “The promotion and growth of gastronomic and wine tourism are intimately linked to connectivity and the means for travellers to find appropriate routes that allow them to reach their destinations in comfort”
