Eating healthy and veggie is “in”: More than 50 % of the Spanish population have tried in the last twelve months a meat alternative (like hamburgers made of vegetables).

There is an obvious link to Africa and its culture as well as to prehistoric times. Thousands of nuraghe (stone buildings) dot the landscape. They proof that people have been enjoying the island for millennia.
