Whereas the first written testimonies of the olive tree come from the Minoan reign, 2,500 years before Christ, it was the Romans who contributed to the consumption and expansion of olive oil from Hispania throughout the Mediterranean and to even the remotest corners of the empire. This bucolic, privileged spot that can be glimpsed from the watchtower on the ancient Silver Way, in the neighbouring village of Torremejía, is located near the foot of the Don Diego Torres Mejías mountain range, and a stone’s throw from the Mozarabic route pilgrims took to Santiago.


These lands, located in the centre of the province of Badajoz, at the heart of the Tierra de Barros region, were coveted by our ancestors, who were able to predict the benefits of these fertile fields, as far back as in antiquity. A geographically and productively strategic place as regards the quality of the land, which has also been witness to numerous settlements. Greeks, Visigoths and Romans now lie under our vines and olive trees, and indisputable proof of this is the distance of just 12 km that separates us from the town of Merida, which the Emperor Augustus made a capital within the Roman Empire.
