A few words about Periana and Verdial olive oil

Periana is an authentic white village in Axarquia, in the province of Malaga.

About Verdial olive oil

The Verdial olive oil of Periana is very famous. In fact, it is one of my favourites, with a preference for the “unfiltered” one.

This olive oil is made from olives of the Verdial variety. Of the 1000 varieties of olives grown in the world, the Verdial de Velez is only grown in Axarquia. It is an olive that stays green for a very long time and its harvest is very late, from January to March.

Dates of the Verdial olive oil fair in Periana

The festival will be held on 5 and 6 April 2024.

During this olive oil festival, there is traditionally :

  • the traditional breakfast (desayuno molinero): bread with olive oil
  • demonstrations of local crafts
  • demonstrations of the local popular culture with the verdiales.

It is an opportunity to live to the rhythm of traditional, popular and typical festivities.
