The Harinera, flour mill, is situated at the end of a large triangular landscaped area. The building is particularly beautiful, despite its architectural style, which is typical of the first industrial buildings erected. A three-storey, rectangular factory with an elongated and narrow floor plan.
A visit to Harinera del Guadaíra in Alcalá de Guadaíra (Seville) provides insight into the history, traditions and culture of the town.
The actual building of La Harinera del Guadaíra, its machinery and equipment have been restored and reconditioned for new purposes. In the past, it housed a factory that milled wheat to make flour, the main commodity of Alcalá de Guadaíra’s bread-making industry. Nowadays, its serves as a cultural, information and tourist centre to encourage local development through the interpretation of this traditional industry.
Both private visits as well as prebooked group and school visits are shown around the building while learning about the town’s bakery tradition. One of the hallmarks of Alcalá de Guadaíra, along with other nearby buildings, such as water mills strewn along the River Guadaíra.
