If you’d like to try Spanish cuisine in a historical setting, look no further than Bar Ludeña. Dating back to 1954, their house speciality carcamusas will have you going back for more. The dish’s name was devised by José Ludeña in the mid twentieth century, earning its title due to being in high demand among both carcas (older men) and musas (the young women who accompanied them), hence the name carca-musas. It is a tomato-based meat stew with peas and a slightly spicy sauce. The bar is located in the heart of the old town at Plaza de la Magdalena, close to Plaza de Zocodover. If you fancy having a go at making the dish yourself, you’ll find a recipe at the following link: leyendastoledo.com
