You cannot leave Úbeda and Baeza if you haven't bought olive oil.

You can find several types: green, black or cornezuelo olives (the last one is a variety which only grows up in the province of Jaén) To make these olives they are mashed and mixed with traditional products from the area as cooking salt, bay, garlic or thyme. To preserve them, they are put in a orza, a glazed earthenware jar, with water.

Pâté of Olives 

During your stay in Úbeda and Baeza you have to taste the typical pâté of olives. Not everybody uses to love this pâté because it has a different flavour from the other pâté, but try once is worth it. And, if you like it, go on, buy it and take it home.
