We found ourselves with a spare day in Granada and wanted to see something that was distinctly Andalucian but where we didn't have to walk for an entire day (which we had been doing previous to this with amazing visits to the Alhambra, Albaicyn and Sacramonte).
So it was nice to be taken on a tour in a small mini bus with a friendly, courteous driver. Learning about olive oil processing and how it was made in the past and how it is made today was really interesting. It helps if you are into food and olive oil of course! We learnt about the quality of olive oil and how to taste it properly. We're trying to apply this now that we're back home and are now rather picky about how we choose our olive oils!
Lunch was a slight let down. Unfortunately, because we came during Winter (and we arrived rather early for Spanish lunch times), the restaurant was empty apart from the two of us. So not much atmosphere. Also my very large salad was somewhat ruined by the fact it was drowned in balsamic vinegar. A complete contradiction as we had just learnt how to make a delicious salad dressing during the tour (using just a spray of vinegar). My other half thought the garlic soup was amazing though.
We then moved on to a beautiful look out point with interesting scupltures. A lovely way to end the day.
