MUSEUM

Visit the Margalef Oil Mill, a new cultural facility for public use from the Natural Park, the New Center of Olive Oil Interpretation, and the Productive Economies of Montsant. It is intended as a forum to show the natural and cultural heritage of Montsant.

Since the rehabilitation of an oil mill founded in Margalef in 1933, there has been a desire to discover the evolution of the landscape of Montsant, raise awareness of sustainability in the olive sector, and encourage the consumption of goods of fine quality. With a tour, guided in an entertaining and informative way, the mill shows the oil production process in a rehabilitated functioning mill.

The visitors start the tour in a space called “Working in the Field”. It emphasizes the restoration of an olive washer and the reproduction of a traditional kitchen to explain the various uses of olive oil in daily life. It also shows how the room itself can further the education of the environment related to the crops of Montsant. The ground floor has been preserved and one can see the olive grinder and olive press, the settling basins, the storage mills, the weights and the transports, the house of the miller, and the tradition of the roast.
