“Our olive trees are located in the foothills of the Sierra de Gredos, near the Yuste’s Monastery, in the idyllic zone of La Vera, a natural environment in which the emperor Carlos V secluded himself, wearied by battles and the political and religious figures of his kingdom. He chose this place to seek peace among all the thousand others of his huge empire where the Sun never sets.”
