Travel: Ubeda, Spain

Today was a bit more casual.  A walk around the charming, sleepy village of Ubeda.  A short ride to see the olive groves and a visit and lunch at an olive oil processing facility.

The weather was generally cooperative with an occasional shower here and there.  Overall, considering the heavy rain the last several days, we have been very fortunate.  We have avoided most of the worst downpours.

The town Cathedral is in the same block as our hotel.

Our lunch was hosted by the owner’s of the Oleicola San Francisco, producers of premium olive oils.
