The olive oil route

The Route of the Oil of Alicante invites you to discover about the olive oil production process, from the olive tree growing to the harvest in the fields, from the oil extracting tasks at the mills to the packaging procedures at the shop.

The olive tree models the landscape conditions by the type of crops, the physiognomy of the fields, terraces and agricultural farms, as well as the way of life of the Alicante people.

It is very interesting to know the facilities in the old oil mills and the modern packaging machines. At the moment advanced techniques and technologies are used as well as the traditional roots are conserved.

Currently you can find several mills and museums or visiting spaces, both public and private, along with a proposal of several routes to discover this liquid treasure that is cultivated in our lands.
