Museum of the Culture of the Olive Tree

Descripción

Through the Museum of the Culture of the Olive tree you will be able to know the different olive oil production systems that have been used throughout history, from the oldest to those used today. In addition, a large garden brings together the main varieties of olive trees that exist in the different countries where this crop is developed.

This museum complex, considered an Asset of Cultural Interest, is located in a privileged natural environment such as the La Laguna Natural Complex, just 9 km away. of Baeza.

Its origins date back to the 17th century, when the farmhouse belonged to the order of the Jesuit Fathers. Later, in the 18th and 19th centuries, the estate passed into the hands of the Counts of Oropesa and the Ducal House of Alba. In 1848, the Collado family will take over the farm and will build an oil mill and plant 100,000 olive trees, which will make this area the most productive in the province. During the 20th century, the property passed through several owners, notably the financier Juan March. Currently, the farm belongs to a consortium formed by the Junta de Andalucía and the Baeza City Council.

Apart from the Museum of the Culture of the Olive tree, you can find in this space a hotel, a restaurant, a camping area, a swimming pool and a spa.
