After consuming daily doses of olive oil, it was very informative to learn more and see the oldest olive tree. A scenic drive and a nice place for a quick visit.

The Olive Tree Museum of Vouves is located near the Monumental Olive Tree of Vouves in the settlement of Pano Vouves, thus creating a uniform and harmonious ensemble.

Fascinating tree, amazing to think it’s survived that long! Area around the tree is well presented and although the museum is pretty basic, it’s worth a quick stop if you are nearby. There’s a small cafe next to museum, we only had drinks there but...More

Get a life. It's a tree, an old one that's it. The area as a whole has nothing to do - hence making a big deal out of an old tree! I would not return to this part of Crete

A nice trip if you are close by to have a break and coffee. A stunning tree of course and the history around it. Great trip to combine if you're visiting the nearby Terra Creta oliveoil factory.

What an amazing olive tree. Over 3000 years old and massive. The museum next to it was closed but looked very clean and the tree had a nice billboard full of information. Looks like there was a small tavern next to it as well.

Be there as early as you can to enjoy the serenity and birds' singing. The place gets crowded around 12 o clock. The little museum is open past 9. Make sure to visit the interior room and the new room made in 2009. Remember to...More

Amazing tree, glowing in the sunset lights. I truly enjoyed that there was almost nobody around at the time of my visit (eveningish), so l could engage with the tree and the thought of how much has passed since it has been alive... The place...More
