The mill in the village of Lithakia has been producing olive oil since 1850. During the free guided tour, you’ll see how the equipment has evolved over the years, from the original wooden press to the centrifuge machine of today. The tour ends with free samples and the opportunity to stock up on delicious souvenirs in the shop: pure extra-virgin oil, including blends infused with garlic, orange or lemon, as well as soap and other local products.
