Hacienda Tilly

57
3

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

The farmhouse, quite well preserved, shows architecture from different periods with a predominance of Mudejar, Baroque and Neoclassical forms, a fact that demonstrates the transformation and growth of the building as it gained more and more importance within the town that was expanding around it. Behind the doorway is the large manor house, with an inner courtyard and a front garden overlooking the church square. The church has a simple lookout tower. On the left is the oil mill with a very mudejar-style baroque counterweight tower. The rest of the site is occupied by the other farm buildings.

The Hacienda occupies an entire plot in the town of Valencina, its position opposite the town hall and next to the parish church indicating the importance of the property. It has all the typical elements of the Sevillian olive grove Hacienda: oil mill, offices, labourers' quarters, manor house and landlords' house. Also known as El Molino (The Mill) or Fábrica Aceite Framoliva, S.A.
