It's an old tree. That's it. Not the most interesting thing I've ever seen, but it may be worth a stop if you're travelling by.

This tree is mind blowing to look at (see pics), as the tree bark as intertwined with itself over hundreds of years, as well as the thickness and general size of the tree base. I wouldn't make an effort to come here especially unless you're...More

Passed by when touring the island. In the village of Exo Chora in the north west of the island. Gnarled, twisted bark and a huge girth, many hundreds of years old, depending who you ask. A few olive oil, honey, local produce stalls in the...More

I have never before seen such a marvel in the natural world, and may never again. This Olive tree is truly unique, and centrally located for anyone touring the island.

Really old Olive Tree set in a small village centre. Couple of Tavaners and shops nearby. Can get a bit crowded if the site seeing mini buses arrive whilst there but they don’t stay long. Well worth a visit as they say the tree is...More

Nice tree to see but except this one, nothing really to see in this small village. The tavern next to it isn't the best food of the island. Some local producers are selling olive oil, local alcohol. To be combined with other activities in the...More
