The secret of LC lies in the rich fertile soil, thanks to the extreme temperatures (hot & cold) and abundant rainfall, typical of the Navarra valley, in the Northern part of Spain, Basque region.
During the civil war in Spain in 1936-1939, soldiers' mothers preserved vegetables, casseroles and pâtés for their sons and daughters and they continued afterwards, as it became essential to store as much seasonal food as possible, in order to be available all year round.
Preserves became both necessary and a part of daily life.
The grandmother of the current owner of LC started up a small jar sealing business combining her knowledge of the terroir, with a strong enterprising nature, that she's transmitted and here became La Catedral de Navarra!
