If you love olive oil then this is the place to come. See the workings of the old methods used to farm and make olive oil. The people here are friendly and you can try samples for a small cost that covers a tour/entrance/video. The oil itself is so amazing I bought 2 large bottles for home. Love it.

Although the tour was interesting, quick and detailed, we didn't like the fact that they were "pushing" us to leave, because of a visit of a group of journalists right after us.

Unforgettable memory I think too that is a bit tricky to find within the heart of Parga town due to the slightly poor signage. We asked 5 people to help us even we used the site’s directions Amazing information about how the olive oil is produced from green or black olives, acidity, colours, how to smell it , how to taste it. Followed by tasting some different olive oils and information on which oils are better than others and why. All information were received from an expert award winner olive oil, very kind man. Amazing experience from Parga ! Unforgettable memory !!!
