The olive oil tourism usually includes a guided tour, breakfast or lunch -which are optional-, although there is also the choice of having a snack in the countryside. You can also make strolls in the close olive groves in order to know more about them – the tour will depend on the oil mill or mill that you visit.
The best time for this tour is in December and January, because this is the time of the olives collection, although you can have a tour at any other time of the year.
