During our journey from Carmona to our next parador in Ronda, we spent a couple of hours at an olive oil facility, sort of like visiting a winery. We were treated to a sampling of the facility's various olive oil products, including a small dish of chocolate ice cream laced with an olive oil topping that was actually good!
Here is a shot of our able guide.
A photo of olives in situ.
A couple of photos of the lovely facility.
And finally a shot of a lion's tail agave that I happened to spy.
A few facts I learned about olive oil: (a) Spain produces more olive oil than Italy. (b) 97 percent of olives are used to produce olive oil; less than 3 percent are consumed as olives. And (c) olive oil does not taste like olives.
Then it was on to Ronda.
