The mill is situated right on the hills of Sorrento, more specifically Sant' Agnello, where, for over a century, they have actively produced the famous extra-virgin olive oil.
The guided tour of the olive oil factory will start with a visit to the olive grove with a presentation of the areas used for cultivation and collection.

With old millstones and metal presses, you’ll learn the ancient technique of olives processing, you can see what it takes to make the oil. You will then take a visit to the modern mill and see current processing before, finally, the best part: the tasting of the extra-virgin olive oil on freshly baked bread and other typical products.
