1. The 3 hour Olive Oil Tour is an excursion, leaving from Granada, to discover the world of the liquid gold!
The tour will take you through the beautiful country views of Granada's Vega, the Sierra Nevada and the charming Lecrin Valley. We will drive through countryside of olive and almond trees.
In a small white village of the Lecrin Valley, we will visit a beautifully preserved XV century oil mill; unique in Spain!

We will learn a little more about the different oils and their labels: organic, virgin, virgin extra, one single olive variety, acidity percentage, appellations of origin, etc.
Olive oil tasting: now let's enjoy tasting some of them! We'll taste some of the most representative oils and learn how to feel in different places of our palate, the bitterness, the spicy, and the fruity sensations, as well as other qualities and characteristics of olive oils.
