On the outskirts of Buera, close to the Santa Maria de Dulcis shrine (17th century) there is a delightful spot where different varieties of Somontano olive tree can be found.
Each tree displays an information plaque describing its characteristics and those of its olives. Information on how the olives are used is also shown alongside a map highlighting where the various varieties can be found across Somontano.
The varieties growing in this magnificent olive grove are those of; albareta, injerto, alquezrana, arbequina, verdeña, blancal, piga, negral of Bierge, panseña, mochuto, sevillano (caspolina), gordal of Somontano, nación, cerruda of Artasona, alía, alcampelina, royeta of Asque and neral.
On the path used to reach the olive trees there is an ancient ice house known as the “Pozo d´os moros” which was once used for storing ice brought down from the mountains. Buera is also home to the Torno de Buera, an olive oil mill from the 17th century, fully restored and now home to a visitor centre dedicated to the olive trees and oils of Somontano.
