The history of this oil dates back to the 1st to 3rd centuries AD, as the Romans had a strong predilection for oil from the banks of the Guadalquivir, and transported it in Roman ships dedicated to the transport of food.

After the conquest of Hispania Romana, Beatia, which is a territory with a strategic location, began to be a place of exchange and administrative center. Julius Caesar's troops stopped in one of the crossings in what is the current city of Baeza. At this time, they were lucky enough to taste the extra virgin olive oil, something that delighted the palates of Julius Caesar, who enjoyed the early oils until the end of his days.

From these places, where Julius Caesar demanded this oil, the extra virgin olive oil "Balcón del Guadalquivir" in Latin means Solarium Baetim, oil extracted near the banks of the Guadalquivir in the Upper Valley.
