Visit to the olive oil press

Olive oil is a food product, used in cooking and particularly as a dressing. It is an ancient foodstuff and a classic of contemporary cooking, a regular part of the Mediterranean diet and nowadays used in most types of cuisine. These days traditional methods of processing olives have given way to more modern extraction processes, using a variation of pressing and temperature. Because of this the traditional cold pressing method is almost non-existent.

Ten minutes form Castelo Branco, in the peaceful village of Póvoa de Rio de Moinhos, in Herdade do Regato, an old olive press has been restored, which was previously known as Lagar da Senhora Dona Antónia (Dona Antónia’s Press). The history of olive oil production was thus restored, reminding us of old times. Enriched by history, his press has been converted into a museum/restaurant full of symbolism and human ingenuity.
