When you're driving by the saffron fields in the center of Spain, it's hard to believe that one of the most expensive products in the world by weight grows in such a seemingly unwelcoming environment. It's arid and dusty and not much seems to grow there except for rocks and saffron trees. And in certain regions, the trees are absolutely everywhere. Even local petrol stations sell saffron in little containers by the gram for next to nothing.
This shed was the cornerstone of one of the saffron fields and gives you a good feel for the rugged terrain and environment.
