The Olive Mill

Bar & Restaurant

The Lagar da Ribeira is a water mill that was built in the 19th century and it served the community for more than 100 years, providing a river-powered olive press, until the process was finally moved to the village in the 1960s. The leat and water systems are still intact, and during the winter months, we will generate hydro-electricity.

The restaurant will provide a focal point for the “Artisan Village”. It is adjacent to the camping site and the Earth Brick eco-dwellings.
