You have to experience this cellar if you are an olive oil aficionado. The mill and machinery could almost start to the shouts of the sailors who were walking the cobblestone paths above it transporters to the finest oils!

Pocket hole of history easy consumed by the provision of written and voiced guides in several languages including English. Really well laid out and extremely interesting portrayal of local oil production and export along with its use throughout the ages. Well worth a look

This is an amazing peek into the economic history of this beautiful place. We were touched by the difficult conditions and hard labor from humans and animals that were the backbone of the culture's economy. Well worth the small entrance fee.
