Mylopetra is the Greek word, in the Cretan dialect, that describes the special round stone that was used on the olive oil mills. During the renovation we had found this original Mill stone that we had kept it untouched as this was a part of “Fabrica” Olive Oil factory building that was running on the Ottomans era.
Olive tree was considered to be a sacred tree, so the olives and the olive oil were the most important element in the Cretans daily life. Olive seed was the basic core component for nutrition, lighting, and religion, considering as precious. Oil mills were a “source of life” for the locals.
