Why Gastro&Cult

My name is Maria José Jordá and I would like to give you a warm welcome to Gastro Cult. If you have come this far it is because you want to find out more about us and the reason behind Gastro Cult. I hope I can reply to your questions.

My grandfather Rafael was my inspiration. He studied Industrial Engineering and in a town called Alcoy, in Alicante (Spain), he founded and managed a textile factory.
During the Spanish civil war he managed to be the supplier of blankets for the Spanish state, so necessary for the soldiers. This arrangement meant a lot of demand, which coupled with his entrepreneurial skills allowed him to function well until several years after the war.
My mother has been a tireless worker who has only instilled in us duty and responsibility. I draw inspiration from them every day.

My life story is rather simple, I studied the same as my grandfather, I emigrated to Switzerland attracted by other cultures and languages, and there I developed a special taste for different cultures.
After 20 years living in Switzerland, France, New York and London, I returned to Spain in 2012.
Since then I have always wanted to do something that helps to better understand the culture and way of living in Spain, because I am aware that Spaniards have much to learn but also many stories to tell.

Collaborations are the basis of what we do in Gastro Cult, we highly value our partners who are the ones who offer differential services every day. To them we owe who we are and our motivation to do things better every day.
I hope that in our Spanish Experiences Marketplace you will find the content that motivates you to carry out your next personal story. We will be happy to hear about it if you want to share it.

Where we work

We have offices in Madrid, Alicante and the Basque Country, where most of the team works. We also have temporary talent living abroad, especially in the US, Canada and India. They help us to better understand the vision of Spain from outside and bring us new ideas that allow us to improve what we offer.

Our job is to find those places, experiences and people in Spain that are able to tell unique stories. We contact them and make them part of our mission: "Unique and Memorable stories in any corner of Spain". Our partners are responsible and take care of every detail to make this memorability possible. We also provide the technology that connects them in a truly unique way with the people who visit us.

What customers say about Gastro&Cult

I will give you a summary of our experience, which I will call "relaxed and charming", and this, taking into account the Covid times that prevailed, is a success. The organization and choice of sites, guides and other was spectacular. The places where we stayed were very special, the kind we would never have found on our own. The guides we hired were very professional and very friendly. The reservations were made in order and without surprises, and the direct treatment with the tour manager was very personalized and with a lot of patience, since due to my little availability for my work she was super patient and at my disposal until we managed to make a trip that was so fun and special. Thanks Paloma, we will repeat with you and I will recommend you to my friends so they can enjoy an unforgettable experience

Laura Trives,

Thanks a lot Maria Jose! People have been delighted with the GastroCult event. They really liked the presentation, the menu and the whole cocktail part! I hope to count on you for more experiences, thanks again!

Amparo Martinez Vidal,

Great organization, I booked at the last minute and it was very simple. Every day we had a different experience to remember. I recommend Gastrocult for their selection of plans and places.
