Olive Oil Core | Proença-a-Velha
Inaugurated in May 2005, the Nucleus of Olive Oil is housed in a former Proença-a-Velha lagar (olive oil mill).

Thanks to the modern equipment installed in 2009, the extraction of olive oil has returned to the site, in a community value of one of the most emblematic products in the region.
Under the guidance of Benjamin Pereira, the work of musealization of this space went through the integration of a Lagar with central screw press and hydraulic traction, thus completing the sequence of traditional technology, whose synthesis, at national level,is addressed in the gallery installed in one of the large palheiras (haystacks) of the complex.
