CREATIVE CITIES AND JAÉN, OLIVE- GROWING TRADITION
The olive oil has had a very important role in Jaén throughout history and even today not only in its gastronomy but also in its economy.
The olive groves, which are part of the more than 60 million olive trees existing in the whole province, are the most important economic activity in the province: the production of olive oil. Jaén is the largest worldwide producer of olive oil.
So it says its slogan, Jaén the World Capital of Olive Oil.
