Molienda : Olive oil feria in Riogordo in 2022
Each year, at the end of February, Riogordo organizes a 3-day Feria: “la Molienda” (literally: crushing olives).
This olive oil festival will take place on 25, 26 and 27 February 2022.
The Molienda de Riogordo is a cultural, ethnographic and gastronomic festival based on Extra Virgin Olive Oil (AOVE), which it means EVOO in english.
The olive oil here is mainly made from the Verdial variety of olive, the emblem of Alta Axarquía. It is the liquid gold of these villages.
