The press room Lagar de Varas de Fojo dates back to 1810, and it worked until 1941 in an Alentejo zone famous for the quality of its olive oil. It is nowadays a museum, where you can observe former olive deposits, ancient olive producing techniques. These techniques are a tradition in this region without using any kind of machinery. This press room is one of the rare examples of ancient Roman olive oil press rooms in the Iberian Peninsula.
