You will taste world-famous Greek olive oil and local traditional products.

Nearly in every Greek dish this highly prized oil is included as the main ingredient offering extra flavor. A bottle of it is also present on the table, inviting guests to pour some on their food just before eating. Greek olive oil is also considered a health cure and essential beauty aid. The oil is used to combat dry skin, control frizzy hair, and even soothe irritated skin. It has also played a key role in the ceremonies of the Greek Orthodox Church throughout the centuries, for example in the baptismal font and on the baptized child, in holy myrrh and during special blessings.
