After driving all morning we final arrived in Beautiful Figueres Spain. I'm aware that I call everything Beautiful. However, everything is truly Beautiful. Figueres is a quiet city famously known as the birth place and burial grounds for Slavador Dali.
We spent sometime looking through the museums beautiful artwork.
Olive Oil Mill
After taking in the beautiful sights in the city Figueres, Spain we visited a family owned olive mill in southern France. While there we were able to learn about the processes used to harvest olives and Ivan, one of the mills employees, taught us how to produce olive oil and allowed us to taste the different varieties produced their at the mill.
