Hacienda de la Sagrada Familia is a building complex located within the town of Castilleja de la Cuesta, on Enmedio Street, near the Plaza de Santiago. Until the last few decades of the 20th century, this area was the town’s commercial, religious and administrative hub. 

The buildings have the typical layout of an 18th-century Andalusian country estate with two differentiated areas: one for wine and oil production, and the other with the stately residence and garden.

 The first written record of Hacienda de la Sagrada Familia estate dates from the 16th century when it belonged to the Hayán family. The compound is accessed through a simple lintelled portal. The former main residence is arranged around a courtyard, to the left of the entrance. The other buildings were distributed around a work yard, at the end of which was the oil mill. The complex was acquired by the Town Council under an urban development agreement and is now the Casa de la Cultura. This cultural centre opened in November 1988. It also houses the Municipal Library, with a reading room and a multi-purpose space where art exhibitions and a range of popular workshops take place.
