San Nicolás del Puerto Puente de Piedra

Sevilla enamora

This old hacienda is accessed through an elegant 17th century Baroque doorway with side pilasters and a pediment representing the Immaculate Conception.

The Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum of La Puebla de Cazalla is located at the Hacienda la Fuenlonguilla. It used to be a traditional olive oil mill that was operational between the 19th and 20th centuries. Its floor plan is practically square with two differentiated areas.

The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Loreto is a highlight in the Andalusian Religious Tourism circuit.

Declared a Site of Cultural Interest, this Monastery-Hacienda has an olive press, a manor house, a fortified tower and a chapel. The olive press is a device to extract oil from olives, while the wine is used for producing wine. There is also a barn and stables.

Hacienda de Belén is located where the town of Bormujos likely originated. The buildings, in the vernacular Andalusian rural-style, now house the municipal services.

This small estate sits on the outskirts of the town. The buildings are distributed around a rectangular courtyard with a central well leading to the mill, stables, hayloft and the housekeeper and overseer’s quarters. Past the very plain entrance is the two-storey stately house with a front garden. This building is a 20th-century reconstruction.

Hacienda de Quinta is located in the old town. The owners have maintained the building to a good standard. The estate is accessed through a small front garden connected to the central courtyard. To the left is the principal residence, built in a rustic vernacular style. Hence, it is thought that it was last rebuilt in the 17th century over the previous structure.

The Cortijo de las Carrizosas is located to the east, on the Marinaleda road. It is a typical construction of the area. When you see this building, you can appreciate how the town of Herrera was formed by joining buildings together one after another. Nearby is the Roman quarry of the same name, today in disuse.
