Castle of Canena

Olive tradition since 1780


What are we?

Castillo de Canena is a family business linked to the world of olive oil since 1780. More than two centuries of history, learning and commitment to excellence have led us to become world leaders in the Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil sector.

Rosa and Francisco Vañó decided to take over Castillo de Canena in 2003 and transform the family brand of bulk olive oil production into a world reference in terms of quality and innovation, offering high-end products and innovative gastronomic proposals based on picual, arbequino and royal EVOO. With a presence in 56 countries to date, we produce our olive oils with the utmost respect for the land, with sustainable resources endorsed by international seals and organisations.

Castillo de Canena is also the name of our family home. A Renaissance castle located in Canena, Jaén, witness to great historical landmarks and declared a National Artistic Monument.
