Olive Museum

Olives, our love and passion.

The opening of the Olive Museum has been inspired by the idea to present the importance of the olive tree and olive oil.
The olive is woven into every pore of the Mediterranean man. The olive is written and sung about… the olive is celebrated. Here, the olive is simply and uniquely loved with our entire being.

Let us take you through this magical world!

Proud member of Routes of the Olive Tree

The olive tree has marked by its presence, not only the landscape, but also the daily life of the Mediterranean people. As a mythical and sacred tree, it is associated with their rituals and customs and has influenced their way of life, creating a millenary civilization, the “civilization of the olive tree”.

The Routes of the Olive Tree follow the footsteps of this civilization, from Greece to the Black Sea through the entire Mediterranean basin.

Totally worth the visit

Excellent underrated gem. Can’t recommend it enough. Hana was an amazing tour guide. The whole thing felt authentic and not at all touristy (which wasn’t at all what I was expecting). Great little shop for gifts for friends.
