"A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral." - Leo Tolstoy

Traveling as a vegan often poses a major issue of being able to find good vegan and vegan-friendly food options. While most restaurants do have some vegetarian options on their menu, more often than not, there are not many vegan-specified options.

This leaves vegans restricted to a handful of options such as bread, salads, fries, or when it comes to something new, to guess and order items which read or look vegan, and that too, with a risk of it turning out to be actually not vegan on arrival. If you are planning on visiting Spain, here are some of the best vegan and vegan-friendly retreats you can choose from.
