An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Hacienda Santa Bárbara

643
1

This former olive-growing estate is accessed through a simple, rustic yet elegant entrance with a portico supported by white marble columns and simple carved capitals with Romanesque-style decoration inside. 

It is located on Príncipe de Asturias Street, in a small triangular square that bears the name of one of the estate’s former owners, Encarnación Cansino.

Although it was renovated in the 18th century, according to documents found in the local archive, its origins can be traced back to the 16th century. Having changed its name several times, it has been called Hacienda Santa Bárbara since the late 19th century.

Extensive renovation works were undertaken between the late 19th and mid-20th centuries. The estate’s primary source of income was olive oil production, although it also had a wine press and wine cellar. The building was acquired by the Town Council in 1991. Today, it houses the Permanente Training Centre and the Local Development and Tourism department.
