The countryside of Jaén: an exclusive settings, the cradle of the rich variety of the “picual” olives
The countryside of Jaén: an exclusive settings, the cradle of the rich variety of the “picual” olives, situated between the Sierra Morena and the mountains of South Jaén in Andalucia, Spain, inside the great twists of the famous Guadalquivir river.
Between Lopera and Martos, in the center of a sea of olive trees, in the greatest artificial forest in the world. Opposite Arjona and on the border with the Cordova countryside rises Alto de Porcuna, a vantage point from where you can see from a distance hundreds of thousands of olive trees.
Neverending non-irrigated extensive olive groves run over clay hills and valleys plowed by roads and rivers.
Here’s where the generous picual variety olive trees grow, born of the wisdom of the Iberian peoples of Ibolka -with the help of Phoenicians and Greeks who brought the sacred tree from the Middle East -, the Romans of Obulco, the Arabs of Bulkona…
These are our surroundings, fertile countryside fields which offers the optimal climate for the cultivation of olive trees.
