What a tree! I'm in awe! The trunk is twisted upwards and it's hollow on the inside. The museum itself is small, but has some interesting objects in it. Overall it's a short excursion and a short visit. I'm glad I went.
We hiked up the 2km or so with kids (8 and 2). A few moans aside and back carries for the youngest we all really enjoyed the off road climbs and spotting things like carob, walnuts and some herbs on the way.

The visit is worth if you are around. The museum is quite small but interesting, the place is beautiful and you can hug a 3000 year old olive tree!
We went here as part of cretan tours "Cretan safari". The museum is a little small but pretty, with lots of agricultural stuff. The main attractions are the 2 old trees at the entrance.. the closest to the road is 1000 year old and the one behind is 3000. The restaurant here has delicious food.. worth visiting for the food... 更多
The Olive Tree is good but the Family run Taverna next to it is even better. It is run by a family and is all Cretan 'home cooking'. The food is superb and is unbelievably cheap. If you visit this area and eat in only one restaurant it's got to be this one!
