Activities Limassol Oleastro Olive Park and Museum

Oleastro Olive Park and Museum

Oleastro Enterprises Ltd was established in 2003 with the vision to promote the civilization of the olive tree in an environmentally friendly way. Its mission is its uncompromising commitment to top quality olive oil, innovation, diversification, and flexibility.

The educational and recreational Olive Park Oleastro features outdoor themes on the olive tree that has healed and nourished Cypriots for thousands of years. Indoors, it consists of a state-of-the-art ecological olive mill with mill stones, a museum, a restaurant, a store, specializing in olive products, a video room, bottling, and storing facilities.

OLIVE PARK & ECOLOGICAL OLIVE MILL

Ideally situated, half way between Pafos and Limassol, gazing the pick of Troodos mountain to the north and overlooking the Episkopi bay to the south, the Olive Park Oleastro is 3 km past the picturesque village of Anogyra, famous for its unspoiled traditional character.

The Olive Park Oleastro is unique, featuring aspects of the 60,000 years of the civilization of the olive, such as extraction methods, farming activities, representations of excavations, the olive tree in painting, professions related to the olive tree, the role of the olives and olive oil in the Mediterranean diet, customs, traditions, history, mythology and much more.

For our younger friends, there is a playground, an artists’ corner, and the park animals. An olive museum, a restaurant, a gift shop specializing in olive products, a visitors’ center, and an ecological olive mill, where people can watch the actual olive oil extraction between mid-October and February, complete the Olive Park.

The ecological olive mill applies the latest ‘green’ technology and produces olive oil of the highest possible standard. It’s a ‘first’ in Cyprus because it uses cold pressing with millstones, and it’s the only mill certified to the ISO22000 (food safety and hygiene) and ISO9001 (quality) and ISO14001 (environmental protection) standards. The olive oil produced here maintains fully all its nutritional elements, original flavor, aroma, color, and polyphenols.
