Collecting honey is a task that has historically been very important in Spain, especially from Roman times.

Our region has had a large number of people engaged in this production, which have developed their activity, thanks to the existence of areas with large areas not plowed, covered by bushes, which have been exploited by beekeepers for honey production.

They are constructions of small dimensions, with rectangular base of masonry and mud walls that often present a single span that corresponds to the gateway. Generally, there is attached to the bee house and plant rectangular roof.
