Love history, found this place, costs only €1,50, so obviously I had to enter. Now or it could have been me who got dizzy from the sun outside and therefor didn't fully understand the visit, but I was barely impressed. Yes, it's fun to see the old mechanism with which olive oil used to be made, but there was very little information available and it didn't speak to my imagination. I've now seen the mechanism and spent half an hour hiding from the sun in the cool underground space, but that's all there is to it.

Only €1:50 and they ask your nationality to put the audio on in your language.
Explains the history of olive oil production, it's use as lamp oil and the resulting importance of the port of Gallipoli.
It is easy to miss, so keep your eyes open.

Special place to learn about olive oil, in the 17th and 18th centuries. The underground olive presses can be viewed and the English recording was very helpful to learn about the process. worth the admission fee. Only takes 20 minutes. Closes at 12:30, so don't go late! Must be able to walk down narrow stairs, a short distance.

A short visit that will open your eyes to past times. It is a slice of the local history that should not be forgotten. The guided tour takes about ten minutes. Totally worth it
