We thought we were just stopping for a photo op of the tree, but was pleasantly surprised that there was also a free museum showing the history of making olive oil in the area. Very informative.

You have to be very much interested in old Olive tree to visit this place. I admit that I am not that interested.
There are however a good little cafe with good sweets.

You will find an Olive Tree , that is said to be 2500 years old , also a museum and a café/shop . The olive tree is old , large and has a connection with the Olympics . The museum , is in 2 small buildings and shows some of the tools used to cultivate olives and to produce olive oil . It also tells the way it is done . Separate from the museum is a café , selling refreshments , cake and also olive oil products . Rest rooms are available .

This tree have an interesting shape and you can see that it is quiet old. Majority of it is already dead. If you are not far, it is worth seeing.

The Olive Tree Museum is located in Ano Vouves about 7 km South of Kolimbari. The museum gives an overview about olive tree history in Crete. Also a historical overview is given. Amazing is the ~3.500 years old olive tree in front of the museum.

Very low key and the tree is simply incredible looking. The little museum is quaint and there is a nice little coffee shop next door. But really, the draw is the tree. Ive never seen anything like it. Imagine everything it has seen and endured...

You notice the wingspan of history as you stand by this ancient olive tree, thinking that it was there long before Jesus Christ

A must-to-visit place. So usual and so unusual. A hidden pearl.
It is unbelievable that this oldest olive tree is over 3000 years old and still give fruits. The silent witness of the start of Iron Age and times with only 50 million people on Earh!

The tree was donated by a Greek family to local community a few generations ago. Currently this family runs a cosy caffee. I strongly recommend to spend there a few moments drinking fresh juice from local oranges and delecting Olive oil cake.

It is a nice old tree. There is also a museum (with information in Greece only) and some old instruments that were used to make oil at the site. Nothing much to see and definitely not worth the trip there.
