Honey Museum and Visitors´ Centre


The Honey Museum, created by the Tenerife Cabildo (Island Government) in 1996, is situated on the La Finca La Baranda property (Sauzal), where the Wine Museum is also sited. This is an initiative taken to support, develop and conserve the island bee keeping industry, aimed at enhancing the quality of their honeys. Here they provide a range of services, such as extraction, analysis, bottling, recovery and rolling the wax, technical and sanitary advice and training.
After analysis and quality control, the Tenerife Cabildo´s Honey Museum guarantees the quality of the honey with its "Miel de Tenerife" label.
