This region bordering the Mediterranean Sea is also home to its namesake city, Valencia, one of the major port cities in all of Europe. The agriculture sector of Valencia is best known for citrus, and typically only produces about 1% of Spain’s olive oil. Valencia does have a long history of olive production, with the area of Castellón known to have many millenial olive trees that still fruit and create excellent oil. Due to the proximity of sea and the height of the terrain inland, Valencia contains several unique microclimates ideal for olive production. One of the signature olive oil producers in Valencia is Masia el Altet, located in the Polop Valley between two protected nature reserves. In addition to typical Spanish varieties Picual and Arbequina, farmers in Valencia also grow local olive cultivars like Alfafarenca, Blanqueta, Changlot Real and Genovesa.
