The Oil Mill
The oldest oil mill is in the centre of town and is 200 years old. An amazing place to visit, the olive mill is powered by a steam machine heated by burning wood from old olive trees. The huge cone shaped granite stone that presses the olives for their juice is the same one that must have been used for generations. The farmers still come in from the countryside to sell their olives to the mill. They transport their olives in big canvas sacks, loaded on exhausted donkeys.
The Cheese Factory
The goat’s cheese produced at the old factory in Monda is very famous and eaten fresh on toasted bread with honey. The goats walk around in the mountains in huge numbers with bells around their necks followed by the goat man and his dog.
