Our house is in the centre of the gentle mountains of Sierra Morena Cordobesa, so it is a winding road like most roads in Spain. However, it is necessary to get there to appreciate the olive groves planted there more than 100 years ago, here is produced the largest amount of organic extra virgin olive oil in the world, of maximum quality. It was also the largest extension of organic production in the world, with more than 10,000 hectares.
The landscapes are incredible and if you want to rest, it is the ideal place.
On the other hand, in the region of Los Pedroches, "pata negra" Iberian ham is produced, there are only four regions with denomination of origin in all of Spain, Los Pedroches is one of these regions.
You can buy organic olive oil and "pata negra" ham at a very good price in the cooperatives of Pozoblanco.
Being in a mountain area, in the region of Los Pedroches the customs and constructions have been maintained for centuries. In other areas of Andalusia the customs have disappeared and have been standardized with the rest of Andalusia. It is the main characteristic of Los Pedroches, a very old culture and customs.
