It’s not exactly a secret that Mediterranean cuisine is huge on olive oil, and Andalusia’s gastronomy is no expectation.
This short Seville day trip will have you leave the city’s bustle and hustle to explore a local olive oil factory. During your visit, you’ll get to walk around the orchard to learn about the production of olive oil before enjoying a tasting session with appetizers!
