HUETE – ROMAN MINES
Delve into the heart of the Roman Civilization and discover how cities like Segóbriga arose. Tour the galleries of the Cueva del Sanabrio on a guided tour with our archaeologist.
In the province of Cuenca we find a series of mining complexes from the Roman Period of "Lapis Specularis" (a crystallized mineral), which possibly constitute one of the largest sets of mines of Antiquity in the whole world, and one of the best preserved today. One of these mines is the so-called Cueva del Sanabrio between Saceda del Río and Huete that you can discover by reserving this route.
OIL TASTING – OLIVARES DE ALTOMIRA
Visit to the Almazara Olivares de Altomira, where they will show us the origin of liquid gold. We will visit the facilities of this mill where they will reveal all the secrets to make a unique virgin olive oil. And after having learned about the entire production process from the olive trees to the table, we will sit down for a commented tasting to initiate us into this sensitive world of oil tasting. We will taste various types of oil to learn to distinguish its characteristics and enjoy it. Without a doubt, an experience that will captivate us through the senses.
WINE TASTING – ALTOMIRA ARTISAN WINES
Visit the traditional Altomira Artisan Wine Cellar-Cave. This experience begins with a historical visit through the historic center of Mazarulleque, through its streets carved into the rock and through the neighborhood of the cellars-cave, where we will visit two of its traditional buildings. We will enter the Altomira winery, of modest dimensions and very close to the concept of "garage wines" where we can learn about the winemaking tradition of the area. After the visit there will be a commented tasting of Altomira wines with 3 wines and 3 appetizers.
