Overview

MOO Olive and Oil Museum Housed in what was once an olive oil mill, the museum describes the history and techniques of cultivation and extraction through the mythological origins of the olive tree. It illustrates the use of olive oil as a source of light and heat, in religion, medicine, nutrition, sports and cosmetics. It also highlights the role of the olive tree and its oil as a significant element in the collective imagination, with its symbolic, propitiatory and magical-therapeutic values.

Some really interesting historical pieces. The audio guide is very informative. A little museum very well set out and holds hidden delights in its nooks and crannies.
