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.

The day we visited the museum, there wasn't and guide or an audio/vudeo explanation or depliant, while most od the signs are in greek language only. It's a pitty, because the old olive tree outside the museum is a must see.

This is a free museum and the olive tree stands just outside it. There wasn't a soul there when we visited, just a beautiful old dog having a snooze in the tiny car park (so we parked on the road instead). The tree itself is...More
