Papados, 811 06

Built in 1887 in Papados village, the Olive Press belonged to Nikolaos Vranas, grandfather of the Nobel awarded Greek poet Odysseas Elytis. The factory was in operation till the 1970s and its olive oil was traded all over Greece and in Istanbul. The buildings and machinery have been restored and visitors can see a diesel machine TANGYE, constructed in Birmingham UK, one of only seven of this kind. A unique gallery of modern art has been created to host original paintings inspired by the restoration of the monument.
