Superintensive Spanish course with tastings of Andalusian specialities

In this one-week super-intensive course with culinary tastings, which is recognised as educational leave in many German states, you will have the opportunity to taste local specialities directly from the producers and learn interesting facts from the owners about how they have been made in the traditional way for generations. The Academia Pradoventura team is present at all these activities to translate the most important content for beginners.

In addition to the Spanish course, the following activities take place:

Walk to the viewpoint

On the first day, we take a walk to a viewpoint high above Prado del Rey. On the way we have views of the White Village and the two nature parks Sierra de Grazalema and Los Alcornocales. We will give you interesting information about the White Villages, the origin of Prado del Rey, as well as about the nature parks, show you characteristic plants and wild herbs. All this in Spanish, with translation into English/German for beginners.

Visit to an olive oil mill

In the local olive oil mill El Callejón, olive oil has been cold-pressed for generations using traditional methods, not only Extra Virgin Olive Oil, but also the oil of the wild olive “Acebuchina”. This makes this mill one of the few in the entire country that presses acebuchina oil. During our visit, the owner Laureano explains with great dedication the process of harvesting, delivery, grinding and pressing, how olive oil is produced and bottled there. Afterwards, we can taste the three different olive oils with delicious molletes (white bread made according to an Arabic recipe), savour the differences and comment on them. Of course, we can ask questions and use the Spanish we have learnt.

Visit to an Iberian sausage factory

The visit to the Iberian sausage factory gives us an insight into the recipes for Iberian sausages that have been handed down for generations, how they are traditionally produced in the families after slaughter and gently air-dried. While the owner tells us about the natural ingredients and exquisite spices, describes the production process and answers questions, we can taste chorizo (Iberian paprika sausage), salchichón (Iberian sausage similar to salami) and morcilla (Iberian liver and blood sausage), among others.
