The olive-growing history of Hacienda Guzmán goes back more than six centuries, when Hernando Colón, the son of Christopher Columbus, exported the olive oil produced on this Hacienda to the Americas in the period following the discovery of America. This landed state is located in the town of La Rinconada, about 20 minutes from Seville, and very close to the airport and Santa Justa train station.
Olive oil factory. The history of Hacienda Guzmán as an olive oil factory begins in the 16th century when Hernando Colón, son of Christopher Columbus, shipped the olive oil to the Spanish colonies in America, starting with the island of Hispaniola and Cuba.
The visit to Hacienda Guzmán, the headquarters of the Juan Ramón Guillén Foundation, is a walk through Andalusia’s olive-growing history, from tradition to innovation. During the visit, visitors will learn about the evolution of the olive oil production process over the centuries. It is a unique experience.
The visit begins with an introduction to its history; contextualising the importance of this olive oil holding over time. After the introduction, the tour continues in the Olive Tree Museum, where over 150 varieties from 13 countries can be found. Visitors will be better able to appreciate the diversity of the world of olives. We will next see a 21st-century olive oil mill and research centre, where the extraordinary extra virgin olive oil is exclusively produced from olives grown on the estate. We will now take a leap into the past visiting a 17th-century oil mill, a space that has been fully restored to recreate the old oil production process faithfully.
The tour includes a visit to the estate’s three courtyards, the Carriage Museum and the Andalusian Garden.
