Museu do Azeite

Created in an old mill, this museum structure was created to teach the visitors the traditional production process of olive oil, as well as the importance it assumed in the local economy. It is spread over three floors and there you can find the old millstones and presses, where the village's oil was produced until 1995. On the way out, the visitor is invited to taste different types of olive oil and outside, you can admire an olive grove, as well as the Zêzere, which runs behind the building.
