From the Gargano to the Salento the olive tree, with its silvery foliage, accompanies the eye in every corner of Puglia. Young or millennia, thin or bent by the wind, this is the symbol of the region, which boasts a patrimony of 60 million olive trees, as many as the inhabitants of the entire nation. A real museum under the sky. It is a heritage that for thousands of years has marked the productive life of the region, thanks to its ancient origins evidenced by the fossil traces of spontaneous olive trees found on the territory and which still survive with 13 native cultivars of the region, among which the most renowned are the Cima di Bitonto and Mola, Coratina, Ogliarola, Cellina and Peranzana. And, like wine, extra-virgin olive oil is the witness of a thousand-year-old culture that binds the Pugliese close to its land, to be discovered at the table, visiting museums and companies, and in the many underground oil mills. The itineraries are numerous and cover the entire region. Prices vary according to the chosen cellars and the type of experience. In some periods of the year such as autumn it is possible to take part in the olive harvest and follow the whole production chain, led by experts who will provide practical lessons to combine with food and dishes of the different qualities of Evo.
