Cyclades Olive Museum
The owner, Dimitris Chelmis, personally guides visitors around the mill, explaining all the stages of the oil production process: the animal powered mill in one room, the cleverly engineered press in another, and finally the storage room where temperatures were naturally regulated by the design and construction of its massive walls.
