A Sea of Olives and Starts. Martos. Jaén
We propose a cultural getaway in Martos, with guided tours of its historic centre and landmarks, oil tasting in a traditional oil mill and an exclusive private guided Star gazing observation from the vicinity of the Via Verde countryside trail.
Come to Jaén and discover one of its jewels, the village of Martos. This thriving town located southwest of Jaen is known for its olive oil producing tradition and is the largest producer of olive oil worldwide. Among its agricultural landscapes, we can highlight the ubiquitous backdrop of the mountains of the Sierra Sur of Jaén, which features peaks over 1800 meters high. This quiet countryside harbours a secret: when night falls, thousands of stars appear in the night sky which was declared a Starlight Reserve in 2014. Come and explore the cultural and natural heritage of this town teeming with history, gastronomy and rich countryside landscapes.
