A very sweet museum opened its doors in Colmenar, a small town in the mountains of Malaga, about 30 km north of the capital.

The Honey Museum offers a walk through the world of beekeeping, an unknown sector to the public, making aware of the importance of beekeeping in biodiversity and the environment.

The name of the village "Colmenar" (Apiary) comes from a long beekeeping tradition in this small town. Museum visitors can learn about the honey bee breeding and the preparation of the eight types of honeys from Malaga (flower, rosemary, orange blossom, thyme, eucalyptus, avocado, forest and chestnut), tour through the history of the world of beekeeping, whose origins lie in ancient Egypt.
