Learn the secrets of Malaga's olive oil by visiting the countryside towns of Alfarnate and Alfarnatejo, located in the heart of the Axarquia mountains.
Olive Oil Tour of Alfarnate and Alfarnatejo
Once we've picked you up from Torre del Mar, we'll head to a hundred-year-old olive grove where we'll learn how the olives that produce the olive oil, popularly known as "the liquid gold of Andalusia", are grown and harvested.
Our route through the province of Malaga will continue in an Andalusian farmhouse where we'll learn how an olive oil mill works. Did you know that this mechanism used to extract the oil is an invention of Arab origin? After reviewing the history of this ingenious mill, we'll enjoy an olive oil tasting session. Will we be able to distinguish its varieties?
The oil tasting will whet our appetite. To satisfy it, we'll go to one of the most famous restaurants in the region: the Venta de Alfarnate. Our traditional lunch includes a typical mountain dish based on chorizo, loin, migas, fried eggs and oranges. The inn where we'll taste these delicacies also has a small Museum of the Bandit, whose objects will take us back to the time of the War of Independence started against the French in 1808.
Once we have recovered our strength, we'll go to the "Pyrenees". No, we'll not go to the Spanish-French border, but to the area of the Malaga mountains known by this name. Among its beautiful mountain landscapes, there are two beautiful white villages surrounded by olive trees: Alfarnatejo and Alfarnate. We'll take a short walk through their picturesque streets to review the history of both towns, which were of great strategic importance during the Reconquest.
After visiting these towns, we'll return to Torre del Mar.
