THINGS TO SEE AND DO IN OLVERA

 

Olvera is perched on top of a hill and can be seen for miles around. The town boasts the beautiful Neo-Classical Church (Iglesia Parroquial de Nuestra Señora de la Encarnacion) at the summit in the Plaza de Iglesia and a completely renovated and restored Moorish Castle. Halfway down the hill, above the fountain in Plaza de Andaluciaare the Waterfall Gardens and the Mirador (‘Beautiful View’) which is an incredible vantage point over the whole puebla.  

FOOD, DRINK & SHOPPING

There are friendly and welcoming bars and restaurants to suit every taste. They offer great value for money and the local cuisine is delicious everywhere! The local shops provide everything you need; from daily requirements to gifts and local produce.

There are many supermarkets and grocers, meaning you're only ever a short stroll from one, but there is also a larger Mercadona located a 10-minute walk from the Old Town. Olvera is well known for its excellent olive oil; it is still the main source of agricultural income in the area and rows of Olive trees can be seen for miles in any direction. You can buy your olive oil direct from the source again, just a short walk from the centre of town.

We have a wonderful Saturday market which is buzzing and its traditional to go for a Spanish breakfast of toast, dribbled with olive oil and tomato served with a café con leche after.
