Welcome to Los Olivos Retreats

an inclusive Christian ministry offering guided residential retreats and pilgrimages in Spain, and online retreats.


Los Olivos Retreats builds on the retreat ministry of Hacienda Los Olivos, which began in 2010 in the Sierra Nevada mountains, and which in 2019 moved from its original spiritual home to other equally stunning locations and venues in Spain.

The residential retreats follow a rhythm based around morning and night prayer, shared meals, teaching and conversation, and personal space for rest, reflection and relaxation. They also include guided visits to relevant sites in each of these historic cities, connected with the theme of each retreat.
