O lagar de Varas de Fojo

2019-11-07 09:49:35



"O lagar de Varas de Fojois" was an old community-type mill, meaning anyone who had an olive could bring it to this mill and process it, leaving a portion of the olive oil produced to the mill owner. It evolved from the Roman olive oil production system operating for 100 years between1841 and 1941.

It was classified as a building of Public Interest in 1986. It is currently requalified as a museum, open to the public. The collection maintains the original machinery of the mill, and presents information that provides a thorough understanding of how the mill operated, along with information of the daily production and the history of olive oil.
