This was an interesting view. Lots of information on how Olive-presses where run in the old times. In Papados there is a problem parking close to this museum.

Worth to visit, nice history of making olive oil. Well explained procedures, wide collection of equipments. The opening hours isn't the one shown on internet, better to give them a call before your visit
