This place is definitely worth a detour. Doesn't look very special from the outside but amazing once inside. We were so impresed that we donated some money towards its further development. Please go and visit, you won't regret it !

We drove up and thought that it was closed but you can open the gate. There is a small entrance fee per person. It is impressive that the structures of the olive oil factory are still standing.
