The province of Jaén is closely linked to oil, one of the best in the world. The olive groves that inspired Antonio Machado so much dominate the native landscape, also in Baeza. Tourists are increasingly interested in this wonderful product extracted from olives, about the production process, the different varieties… Oleotourism brings us closer and spreads the culture of olive tree and olive oil.

This type of inland tourism is the perfect complement to Baeza´s visit. The activities, visits, accommodation, restaurants, shopping, routes, hiking, and relaxation revolve around olive oil. Olive oil tourism allows capturing the essence of the culture that surrounds the world of the olive tree and presents a new way of enjoying free time between nature and gastronomy, knowing in depth the benefits that olive oil brings to health.

Oil tourism is a pleasant experience and can also be complemented by nature tourism in the Sierra de Cazorla, Segura, and Las Villas, or other mountains of Jaén, such as Sierra Mágina, Sierra de Andújar, and Despeñaperros. A great option is the Vía Verde del Aceite Routes that run through the province of Jaén, some even go into Córdoba.

One of the benchmarks for olive oil tourism in Jaén is Oleícola San Francisco, an oil mill located in the heart of Jaén, in the Comarca de la Loma, Begijar, next to the cities of Baeza and Úbeda. The location is accessible by motorway from all points of the Jaén geography. From this privileged enclave, its oil experts offer the opportunity to discover and feel Liquid Gold.
