  • A museum that made us understand the importance of oil production in Istria. Much more interesting than I expected. You can include a tasting of the local oils, which I did not buy, but I regretted it, at the end of the visit. I also recommend taking advantage of the audio guide, which is not heavy or boring, but it helps to focus on the important points, given the number of explanatory panels. In the shop at the ticket office you can buy the oils that have received international awards.

  • Excellent place to learn about olive oil, its history on Istria, and to taste how extra virgin oil should taste. Very interesting place, very informative tasting session.
  • Very pleasant experience. You should definitely do the tasting. The audio guide is not really needed.
