Fabrica (Factory) in Panagia
It does not come as a surprise that in a very old settlement, dating from the first Venetian period and well known for its rich oil production, there is quite some infrastructure for producing olive oil. The existence and operation of an oil press at the village of Panagia has been widely known, however it is interesting that a traditional oil press has been converted into a visiting area. It is an old factory that keeps its machinery, a so-called fabrica, which reminds us of the cultural heritage of the village. The Fabrica has been purchased by the Cultural Association of Panagia, who have been responsible for its restoration. Nowadays you can visit it with a free entrance.
