Spain is the largest producer of olive oil in the world with 80% of the production coming from the Andalusian region. The history of olive oil in Spain spans 6,000 years when it was first prepared by the Phoenician and Greek settlers of the Iberian Peninsula. The importance of olive oil to Spanish culture cannot be overstated. The locals actually refer to it as "liquid gold!" Join this tour to learn the importance of Olive oil (and wine) production for agriculture in Spain.

    You will meet with your tour guide bright and early in Cordoba and be driven to experience a combination of two of the most valued items in the Spanish culinary world: wine and olive oil.
