Covering a whopping 700 hectares of land, welcome to the largest olive grove of Aragon. Here we find hundred-year-old and very large olive trees, which are distributed into small plots. The mills of Belchite rely on these plants, most of which are of the empeltre variety. The trees provide the raw material to make some of the best extra virgin olive oil in the country, the quality of which is often rewarded with prizes. There is a circular route 11.5 km long from Belchite to Codo, perfect for a pleasant walk in Aragon’s olive country.
