WHAT TO SEE / BAEZA GASTRONOMY
One of the great attractions Baeza offers is its gastronomy based on history and its peculiar geographical location. In many native dishes, you can find influences from Roman, Islamic Jewish, Moorish, or Mudejar cuisine, civilizations that have marked Baeza culture over the centuries and that have merged with native culinary habits. Traditional cuisine is also closely related to seasonal and festive cycles, as well as to the basic raw materials of the land. All the recipes take as reference the liquid gold from the olive groves of the province of Jaén: Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Of course, olive oil is the great star of cuisine in Baeza and throughout the region. The province of Jaén is the largest producer in the world and its land makes some of the best oils on the planet. The benefits of this wonderful product are innumerable. Science has shown that its characteristics are healthy and medicinal, not to mention its excellent culinary qualities.
