Imperia, Olive Oil Capital

Imperia is famous in Italy for its Extra-Virgin Olive Oil production, exported throughout the world since the 1900s. The main ingredient for this "yellow gold" is the Taggiasca olive, introduced to the are by the Benedictines in the 12th Century. The Taggiasca is characterized by its small size and very sweet flavor. It is these very traits that have made Imperia's oil such a sought-after product around the world.
