On the Spanish Mediterranean coast, in an area where the territories of Catalonia, Aragon and Valencia meet, you will discover the largest concentration of thousand-year-old olive trees in the world.
In this territory, the Mancomunidad de la TAULA del SÉNIA was created in 2003, an entity that groups 27 towns from three different autonomous communities (Catalonia, Valencian Community and Aragon), all of them located around the Natural Park of Els Ports de Beseit.
Godall, the town where Merades oil is produced, is located in the center of the Montsià region (south of Catalonia), which also includes the well-known Delta del Ebro Natural Park (one of the most important aquatic habitats in the Mediterranean). This strategic position between the two Natural Parks gives rise to a combination of plains and mountains on one side and our beloved Mediterranean Sea on the other, which generates warm summers and mild winters, with moderate rains in spring and autumn.
It is a perfect climate for the growth and maturation of the olive.
Around our crops, different types of aromatic flowers grow (thyme, oregano, tarragon, rosemary, orange …) that add a sophisticated combination of secondary aromas to our olive oils.
This land’s temperate climate and rich soils have seen over the centuries many different cultures that came and went driven by the flow of historical events. Many of them left their mark, which has survived over time and has become part of our own culture. Among other things, the cultivation and consumption of olive oil. ultures that came and went driven by the flow of historical events.
