An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Museo del Aceite La Fuenlonguilla

The Olive Oil Museum of La Puebla de Cazalla opened in 2010. It is located in the former mill at the Hacienda la Fuenlonguilla from 1858. This Museum offers a tour of the age-old process of extracting “liquid gold”. The visit includes the former mill, its oil press, the grooves in which the earthenware oil vessels were placed, the vessels themselves and 32 information panels. The living quarters of the former owners are also open to visitors.    

The Museum is a live recreation of the oil production process. From harvesting to the extraction of this prized “liquid gold”, as well as the preparation and cleaning of the olive grove. It is, therefore, a means to keep alive the roots and affinity that the local people feel for this essential ingredient of the Mediterranean Diet, a benchmark of the economy and culture of La Puebla de Cazalla.
