Hacienda Guzmán is more than a space for the production of olive oil, it is a world reference centre in terms of oleotourism. It now opens its doors to you, to learn what it was like before and now in this key sector in the Andalusian economy. The olive-growing history of Hacienda Guzmán dates back more than five centuries, when Hernando Colón, son of Cristóbal Colón, exported the olive oil produced on the estate to the Americas. Between the 16th and 19th centuries, each of the hacienda's three towers housed a beam mill, which made it one of the largest olive oil factories in the world. Today, Hacienda Guzmán, which has a mill and a 15-meter-long mahogany beam dating from the seventeenth century, offers a faithful recreation of the traditional process and is a reflection of the reality of the current olive sector, with innovative facilities that allow it to obtain the most select olive oil. Visit our facilities and you will be able to appreciate the extraordinary richness and complexity of the world of olive oil, in a unique environment.
At Hacienda Guzmán, you will find one of the largest olive tree museums in the world. More than 150 varieties from 13 different countries give us an appreciation of the extraordinary richness and complexity of the world of olive oil.
Comprised of three independent high-precision mills, it allows olives to be ground by varieties and with exhaustive control of both the beating time and the temperature to which the olives are subjected during the process. The result is an EVOO of the highest quality.

The third courtyard of the Hacienda houses the stables of purebred Spanish horses, today the object of praise for their special and beautiful morphology and for their majestic way of dancing. This courtyard also has a carriage museum containing a private collection of original carriages from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
Hacienda Guzmán has Arabic gardens and a traditional irrigation pool that were the former main entrance to the hacienda. The symmetry of the towers shows the importance of aesthetics in the constructions of the time, as it is a baroque style building from the 18th century.
This multipurpose room is ideal for hosting all kinds of corporate events such as presentations, conferences and workshops or any other type of work session.
