They don’t make them like Mesón de Paco anymore, a gloriously old-school tapas bar between the city centre and train station. The walls are plastered with faded bullfighting posters and local press cuttings and the food comes out of a tiny kitchen behind the bar. You’ll be surrounded by locals, as hardly any tourists come here.
