The Hotel “OLEUM” is a mansion built in 1924 by the banker Francisco Rueda as a family residence in Andújar, the entrance to the Natural Park “Sierra de Andújar”. The city is rich in historical and artistic heritage and celebrates several major events each year such as the Romería de la Virgen de la Cabeza, Semana Santa, Andújar Flamenca, Anducab and much more.

Gourmet author restaurant

The gourmet restaurant “Refugio” is located in the beautiful 16th century basement of the building. The kitchen is run by chef Pablo Dueñas and sous-chef Olmo Crespo and the dining room by Ángel Fernández, sommelier and head waiter.

Through the dining room there is access to an air-raid shelter, discovered by accident during the renovation of the hotel in 2022 at a height of 7m. It was built in 1937 in the middle of the Civil War, as the mansion was the Republican Army Officers’ Residence.
