According to the legend Fernando II of Aragon, traveling along with his entourage through Andalusia, he decided to stop at a tavern he found along the way. It is said that the establishment was full of dust and dirt, when the king ordered his drink, the tavern owner placed a slice of ham (or cheese according to the versions) on his glass to prevent dirt from entering, spitting out a phrase “here is your top, majesty. ” It is said that since then, the King whenever he went to an establishment wanted a flat of wine with something to eat, this is how this world-famous fashion began, which began as a natural cover to protect wine.
Some claim that this act has a plebeian origin away from the legends of royalty focuses on the need for farmers and workers of other guilds to ingest a small food with wine during their workday, to allow them to continue with their labors until the time of the meal.
