After our short stay in the caves of Guadix, we spent a couple days in Granada. It was really neat to see all the Arabic influences around the city, which made it so different than any other Spanish city we’d seen. Of course we spent a big chunk of our time walking around the enormous Alhambra, and it was incredible. I can see why people wouldn't want to leave that place.
On our way to Seville we took a pit stop in Jaén for some olive oil tasting. The province of Jaén is a major producer of olive oil in Spain with olive groves covering just about everywhere you look. We were the only people at this small, family-owned olive mill which meant we got to ask all the questions we ever wanted about olive oil. Our excellent tour guide talked us through the process of producing olive oil and then we got to taste three that they had produced (one of which was awarded #2 in the world in 2014). We convinced ourselves that it was necessary to buy an abundance of olive oil and were banking on sheer magic that it would all fit in our luggage.
Our very last stop in Spain was Seville. We had heard such great things about the city and were pumped to explore this part of Andalusia. Unfortunately, we happened to be there during some really high temperature days which made a lot of outdoor activities almost unbearable. But we made up for the heat with tapas and sangria galore! You can never go wrong with more sangria.
