The Olive Museum in Andros Island!
by: Anonymous

The Olive Museum: This museum was an old oil mill in Pitrofos near Aladino north of Batsiou-Androu road that runs from Batsi to Andros.

The museum is about 17.6 kilometres from Batsi and it takes about 25 minutes drive. The civil engineer Chelmis Dimitris possessed Chelmis oil mill.

It is known by his name as Chelmis oil mill when the mill became his property and then changed to be an agricultural museum.

Animals powered it in the old times, to drive the pressing process of the oil production.

The Olive Museum has been established to keep the tradition of the oil industry alive.

The ruins of the Venetian fortress are off Andros town in an islet connected to the town by arched bridge. People reach it by boats.

Excavations in Strofilas revealed coastal prehistoric Neolithic settlement in Strofilas since around the 3rd century BC.

The pigeon houses or the dovecotes in the Island of Andros and the Island of Tinos are considered work of art.
