Honey Interpretation Center
The Honey Interpretation Center is located on the path of Los Rubiales, next to the Cercado del Cipres.
Andujar is a city historically linked to the apicultural sector, this being one of the many reasons why it has become a relevant destination for ecotourism. With an approximate production of 240,000 kilos of honey per season, Andujar is located in the second municipality of Andalusia in production. In addition, we must highlight the quality of our product, highlighting the variety of honey of flowers, one of the most appreciated internationally due to its wide and unique diversity, thus reflecting the biodiversity of the Sierra de Andujar Natural Park.
In this space of about 400 square meters that tries to imitate the cell structure of a hive, you can enjoy its three didactic rooms: the exhibition room, which explains the biology and anatomy of the bee, the extraction process of the products of the hive and the evolution of beekeeping throughout history; the Audiovisual Projection room and the Workshop room and Object Handling, which allows the knowledge of apparel and utensils of beekeepers, the tasting of honey from our town, as well as the enjoyment of related interactive games with the world of the bee prepared for children.
