Gastronomy - Las Arribes

Oil. Extra-virgin olive oil

Fruity, dense, with an intense fragrance and spicy touches. This is the extra-virgin olive oil elaborated in the natural parks of Las Arribes and the Sierras de Francia and of Béjar, which adds singular notes to the prized olive juice.

Arribes Cheese. Sheep raw milk

The north-east landscape of Salamanca, dotted with forests of oak trees, oak groves and croplands, turns into terraces by the river Duero and its canyons. These particular conditions make pastures and scrubland vegetation ideal for any kind of livestock.
