Discover the fascinating history of the social and cultural implications of an olive oil producing estate in the Tramuntana. You will learn how Son Moragues, a 700 years estate, has become and example of sustainable agriculture and land management.
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. The second part of this experience is a guided and informative olive oil tasting in the olive grove. You will also have the opportunity to 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 the shade of olive trees.
- Prepare for walking on rugged soils, bring solid shoes and outdoor clothes.
