A History of Flavours and Traditions in Valldemossa

 

A History of Flavours and Traditions in Valldemossa

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to discover Son Moragues, the quintessential “Possessio” of the Serra de Tramuntana. This 700-year-old oil Estate and once home of the Archduke of Austria Luis Salvador is fast becoming a reference for sustainable organic agriculture and land husbandry in Spain.

Greatly inspired by ancestral knowledge and without dismissing modern understanding, we are now producing award-winning organic olive oil. Son Moragues is a beautiful example of successfully revived traditions based on a sustainable and harmonious human presence in the Tramuntana.

After a gentle climb on the terraces of the olive grove we will reach the viewpoint favoured by the Archduke. From here, you will discover the many facets of olive growing in the Tramuntana. We will explore the human, social, historical and sometimes spiritual aspects of producing olive oil in the Mediterranean, and we will marvel at the way men have sculpted their environment to create long lasting prosperity for themselves, and for their land.

On our descent back to the village, we will explore the processes involved in the making of our prize-winning organic olive oil. Our Tour will end in our Food Lab in the village of Valldemossa with a guided and informative olive oil tasting. You will also try our homemade organic jams and jellies served with local cheese and traditional rustic bread.

This activity includes:

  • Meeting point at the wooden gate of the olive grove at the end of the street “Carrer Josep Coll Bardolet”.
  • An informative stroll in the olive grove of Son Moragues.
  • An olive oil tasting in our Food Lab in the village of Valldemossa.

Please prepare for walking on rugged soils, bring solid shoes and outdoor clothes.
