ANDALUSIA – OUR REGION
In addition to the sun, the beach, the Flamenco and the historical buildings that reflect the cultural richness of our region: Andalusia above all stands out for its gastronomy. No other ingredient represents Andalusian cuisine better than olive oil. The cultivation of olive trees in Andalusia and especially the export of olive oil were developed more than 2000 years ago within the Roman Empire.
The province of Jaen is located in the northeastern interior of Andalusia, it has endless olive groves. Jaen, due to its privileged climatic and soil conditions, is the largest olive growing region in the world and the home of María Leona.
And it is in Alcaudete a small town in the province of Jaen, where our olive grove of centenary trees is placed.
