Is there anything healthier than starting the day enjoying a piece of toast with a drop of olive oil? We are sure you will know of other options but... with a 'divine' olive oil? That would be more difficult. If you want to see for yourself, visit Arróniz
, a pretty village in central Navarre where there is a legend that says that the olive tree that grows in the chapel of Mendía grew from the Virgin Mary's tears… so what could be better than spending a weekend paying homage to the village's star product?
The event takes place every year in February. On the Saturday there are competitions of olives
and home-made desserts
, and on the Sunday the 'Day of the Toast'
and the Festivity of the Olive Oil of Navarre
, where the traditional tasting of toast is joined by a gastronomy and handcraft fair. Are you up for it?
