21 Sep Villanueva de Cordova celebrates the XVII Iberian Bellota Ham Fair
From 5th to 7th October, Villanueva de Cordova celebrates a new edition of its popular Bellota Iberian Ham Fair, in honor of one of its most characteristic products, with Denomination of Origin Protected Los Pedroches, as its hams. This quality of ham in this Andalusian village is due to the fact that Iberian pigs are bred freely in one of the biggest and best Dehesas in the world.
If you like ham, we recommend you visit Villanueva and do not miss the tastings at this fair. Two of the most important events that take place in this event are the Jam Cutters Competition, approved by the National Association of Ham Cutters, which has the participation of the best cutters, and the Best Iberian Ham Bellota Contest Pedroches.
It is worth to spend a few days in Villanueva, not only to enjoy savoring a product as exquisite as ham and its rich gastronomy in general, but also because it is an ideal destination to disconnect, to walk quietly, without haste and to be lost in its pasture and others natural landscapes.
