Ibérica

Pair signature Serrano ham croquettes or an Ibérica burger with a sangria at this eatery run by Michelin-starred Chef Nacho Manzano.
Ibérica's Spanish heritage is perfectly accentuated by lanterns made from matador jackets, handcrafted silk chandeliers and tapestry-trimmed seating. Their vibrant terrazas are a great place to mingle with other patrons over delicious eats and lively conversation. On the menu you'll find an array of traditional epicurean delights, served with a modern twist. Authentic ingredients like Ibérico ham sourced from Juan Pedro Domecq, shine. Team it simply with a pour of manzanilla. Try the gazpacho with red berries, beetroot and anchovies; fried chorizo lollipops with pear alioli; and creamy black rice with squid, prawns and alioli. A fabulous selection of sherries, wines, cocktails and sangrias are the ideal accompaniment to a meal. For a special occasion, pop a bottle of Gramona III Lustros Gran Reserva.

Children can also get a feel for the history and architecture by following the Explorer Trail. A restaurant and shop are located in the visitor store. Tours and guided walks are also offered to get the full of experience of what the cathedral and the area has to offer.
