The olive museum is housed in a building that used to be an olive mill and belongs to the Charlamba family, one of the largest and oldest families on the island. The building has been declared a historic monument by decision of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in 1997. It is part of a building complex that includes houses, stables, oil and grain warehouses, etc. and is located in the middle of the settlement.
