Do you know that Spain produces between 40 and 45% of the world’s olive oil? That's why olive harvest season is so special. From the ancient times, olives have been grown from Cordoba to Seville. Thousands of amphoras of oil were shipped to Rome. So picking and making olive oil is an important part of local life.
