At the beginning of the 20th century, about twenty oil mills operated simultaneously in Ascó. The large concentration of these industries was because agriculture, and in particular the cultivation of olives, was the main economic source of the village. Today, most of these mills have disappeared.
One of Ascó’s star products is the olive oil, extracted from centuries-old and some millennial olive trees, as well as from young plantations.
With varieties such as arbequina or graft, an oil of great quality and flavour is produced.
