Everyone loves olive oil. However, most of the oils in a supermarket are not authentic and pure. Visit this old mill and you will learn how the oil is produced and how real, pure and organic olive oils tastes. You'll be amazed. Highly recommended!

This is a must-visit for every olive oil history and heritage fan. It is a private, family-owned establishment. The visit is really interesting due to the historical elements and the unique equipment of a small but high-quality production. And the oil is excellent. Recommended!
