This oliven tree is very old. We drove her by car. And that was a little museum there. And a branch from this oliven tree was used in the olympic games in 2004.

You'll walk through the small museum in about 10 minutes. But there are some interesting things, if you're interested in olive oil history! Museum entrance is free of charge. Outside you'll find the famous olive tree of vouves and a taverna.
