Olive Oil Press

This 18th century press building next to Oeiras palace, has become a cultural space housing different exhibitions such as Daniel Curado's paintings.

It looks beautiful with the artwork inside of such an old building. Amazing combination! They really work well together :)

Olive oil press. I thought it was a press but didn't think of olives. Nice photos.

Peter said...

The olives are obviously pressed elsewhere, but at least this nice place has been preserved!

I will have to make sure my wife see these photos since she has a real fascination with olive oil. She and I cook with litters of the stuff and it is good!

That's a beautiful old mill...much nicer than the modern one I showed on my blog! And a nice use of the space.

A nice combination of old things and modern art. As for olive oil, I'm using it every day for all purposes. It's one of the healthiest and best oil in the world.
