Museum of the olive and Greek olive oil in Sparta
The Museum of the Olive and Greek Olive Oil in Sparta is unique of its kind in Greece and is located in the heart of Laconia, where olive cultivation is closely linked with the tradition of the place. Laconia is one of the main oil producing regions of Greece and produces high quality olive oil and table olives.
Museum’s aim is to highlight the culture and technology of the olive and olive oil production, which is inextricably linked to Greek and generally Mediterranean identity. The museum unfolds in front of the eyes of the visitor the catalytic effect of the olive in shaping Greek culture throughout the ages.
