Vranas Olive Press Museum

It's here 

Vranas Olive Press Museum is a stunning industrial building of unique architectural value which is located at Papados village, in the wider region of Gera. It was built By Nikolaos Vranas, the grandfather of the poet Odysseas Elytis, and it operated until the early 1970s when it closed down and surrendered to the decay of time.

In 2005, the plan preparation for the restoration of the historical olive-oil press and its conversion to a museum was accomplished. In the meantime, the factory’s equipment was also repaired and re-operated. The visitors are able to gain a complete understanding of the operation of the former olive-oil press. 

In addition, the 112 financial books of the former olive-oil press, which are part of the most rare and complete financial records ever found in Greece, were preserved by the National Bank of Greece Cultural Foundation.

Finally, a unique gallery of modern art was created including paintings from great Greek artists who inspired from the restoration of this important monument.
