Culture & History - Olive Oil & Wine experience

The quality of the Cretan olive oil is known all over the world. With the Olive Oil Tour, which includes a visit at the olive mill, you have the opportunity to observe three different olive mills for free. The visitors will also be able to see the way in which olive oil was produced in the old days, with the help of manual tools and animals, or in later generations when the oil was extracted with less effort, thanks to the help of an oil machine, and finally the modern processing that takes place today. Olive oil can be bought from the olive mill.

Next, we will visit a local winery for a tour of the plant, and you will also get to taste 3 different wines, served with an assortment of rusks, olives, and cheese.

Moving on, we will drive to a pottery workshop. There we will start our excursion from the village of Margarites, famous for its ceramic tradition. In this workshop, we receive visitors from all over the world who get to know the Cretan Ceramic Art and observe how we make the pots on the wheel, how we decorate them, and how they are baked in the oven in order to reach their final form. We will be very happy to show you the process of our work, to show you the modern tools we use but also the tools of our grandparents, and if you wish you can attempt to create your own works with our help, without additional cost.

Our next destination is the Arkadi Monastery, which contains one of the finest Venetian churches on Crete. The tragic events that took place here in 1866 made it a national symbol of Crete’s heroic struggle for independence. Thus, the Arkadi Monastery is an important part of Greek history.

Our last stop will be at the city of Rethymno, where you can explore one of the most well-preserved old towns in Greece. The city combines rarely united features: the old town's charm and history, with a long sandy beach, which is within proximity.
