The picturesque landscape is adorned with countless olive groves that yield the famed Cretan olive oil, renowned for its exceptional quality. Nestled amidst these groves are traditional olive oil factories, where age-old techniques meet modern innovation. These factories serve as bustling hubs during harvest seasons, bustling with activity as locals meticulously handpick olives and carefully transport them to be pressed.
