Olive Groves on roLling hills

Driving through Andalucìa, you will notice that the most abundant crop throughout the Andalucia - in particular, Jaen province, though also Seville, Cordoba and Almeria - is the olive. Line after line of olive trees, often on rolling hills, stretch for as far as the eye can see.

In Jaen more than 4.500 square kilometres is devoted to olive groves containing around 40 million olive trees. This province alone produces more olive oil annually than the whole of Italy.
