MORE ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Olive oil has been present in the Mediterranean cuisine for many centuries, probably even before Roman times. Millions of olive trees cover vast extensions, shaping the landscape of Andalusia. Did you know that Cordoba is the province with the most Extra Virgin Olive Oil’s AOC (Appellation of origin) ?

Discover the amazing world of olive oil. Our expert will help you discovering its features, types of olives, tonalities, flavours, etc

We will talk about 5 types of oil:

– Lampante: Virgin Olive oil with is not good enough due to its high acidity level, which makes it not suitable for consumption.

-Arbosana: also known as arbequina, name of a type of olive. The oil obtained from this sort of olive is sweet and aromatic. You will appreciate aromas that remind you of apple and banana.

– Picual: the most intense olive varietal. Slightly spicy and bitter. Fragrance of tomato plant, reminds you of typical cordobesian dishes like gazpacho and salmorejo.

– Hojiblanca: one of the most common olive types in Córdoba. Intense flavour but not bitter. Very subtle spicy flavour. Fresh aroma, hints of almonds and fresh cut grass.

– Flavored: new market trends are coming up, like smoky and truffle olive oil.

First we will have a walk in the picturesque San Lorenzo’s neighbourhood, where we will be able to visit some patios and enjoy of such a traditional hallmark of our city. And to put a topping on the cake, we will enjoy the magical sound of a classic Spanish guitar.
