ALGARVE PRIVATE TOURS - OLIVE OIL & TERRACOTA ROUTE Full day


  Olive Oil & Terracota Route full day Tour
operating all year
 The route of this tour takes us to the rurality of the Algarve, and shows us unknown aspects still very important to the economy of the region, such as the production of olive oil and the traditional clay Plants and Terracotta. Travel east, to visit an artisan producer of olive oil in the Eastern Algarve. There are 20 hectares of olive grove planted, the olives are picked by hand in autumn and immediately take them to the press which dates from “roman times”, where they are ground to paste in a granite stone mill. The oil is then extracted with state of the art modern equipment and stored in stainless steel containers until it is filtered and bottled. The result is an olive oil of the highest quality…Extra Virgin Olive Oil. 
In the afternoon visit a small company dedicated to the production of genuine Portuguese and handmade terracotta tile, preserving the manufacturing process of the ancient craftsmen.
Products are made with a mixture of clays extracted from secular clay pits, thus achieving a warm atmosphere that inspires natural environments. In this region, is where it is produced the known “Santa Catarina tile”, the “Tijolo Burro” brick, the” Santa Catarina” roof tile, and other flooring and coverings, manual and traditional terracotta pottery.
On the return we will make a stop to visit a traditional arbutus (fruit) distillery for the production of medronho brandy (fire water).
