Olive Tree Museum Vouves - Room A
Chania

The Olive Tree Museum of Vouves is located near the Monumental Olive Tree of Vouves in the settlement of Pano Vouves, thus creating a uniform and harmonious ensemble.

The aim of the Olive Tree Museum of Vouves to preserve and promote all the characteristic aspects of the life of the people of this area, as well as those of the people of Crete and Greece in general, that are connected to the olive tree. This relationship includes soil cultivation, planting, pruning, harvesting of the valuable crop, storage and transfer of the crop to the olive mills, pressing etc. The olive tree is part of our daily routine, our nutrition, our celebrations, and, of course, our athletic events, where it symbolizes glory. More generally, the olive tree is known to stand for beauty, peace, friendship and civilization.
