On Thursday (13th March) we spent the day visiting hte Sierra of Arcena where the emphasis was on the Iberian pig. We started with a tour of a ham-curing factory in the town of Jabugo where we were taken around by my good friend Gerardo.

We then headed off to an organic Iberian pig farm where we spent almost 5 hours. The group learnt about everything that goes into making the finest Iberian ham and all the other Iberian pork products. As the weather was superb we sat outside for a wonderful lunch.

Friday was a long day as we went to Granada. This was more of a cultural visit tha anything with two hours to look around the Albaicín distric,t and then after lunch a lot of time to explore the incomparable Alhambra. Our guide for the day, Israel, did a wonderful job.

On Saturday the group had a free day until the evening when we had our farewell dinner at the Michelin-starred restaurant Abantal. The meal was excellent and a fitting way to finish what I think was a great week in Seville.
