The olive groves
The Oil museums
The olive groves in Liguria and the Oil museum: a thousand-year old history which continues today. It is not hard, while driving through the panoramic streets in the ligurian hills, to catch a sight of olive groves. This plant has found the ideal climate for its growth in this region. The climate and the mild temperatures have led to the settlement of many olive groves.
This has also led to the opening of oil museums, which can be found throughout the region. The most important ones are: Museo Carli, Museo Toirano, Museo di Badalucco, Museo Sommariva.
These museums will be particularly fit and informative for oil enthusiasts, gourmands or simply people who are curious to know more about this plant and its oil which made our region known around the world: to learn the way of oil, through history.
