Every country has a national dish, and Spain is no exception. The dish that most people associate with Spain is the rice dish known as paella.
Paella is, on the one hand, very simple, and on the other hand, very complex and confusing.
It also has a surprising history touching on almost every major period in Spanish history.
Learn more about paella, the national dish of Spain, and how it might technically even be Spanish on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

There are many great places to visit in Spain, but one of my favorites has to be Valencia.
Valencia was the first place I ever visited in Spain, and it has a special meaning for me.
It also happens to be the home of paella, as well as one of my favorite restaurants in Spain, Casa Montaña.
You can also visit the famous City of Arts and Sciences and view the exceptional structures designed by the Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava. If you’ve seen a recent science fiction TV or movie, there is a good chance they had a scent shot there.
And, if you happen to be in Valencia at noon on a Thursday, you can also witness the meeting of the Valencia Water Tribunal, the world’s oldest continuously operating democratic body.
If you want to plan your trip to Valencia or anywhere in Spain, you can get all the information you need at Spain.info.
Once again, that is Spain.info.
