Under the reception area guests can visit the old olive oil tank.
The cylindrical tank with a dome was built in 1850 by experienced archbuilders.
Its volume (40 m³) and the quality of the construction of carved marble stones are the main characteristics of this unique underground monument.
This olive oil tank has been constructed by a master builder, Konstantinos Farmasoni, who worked in the area in the 19th century with early 20th.
It has a cylindrical shape with a dome that closes at the top and with a conical graduated shape on the floor to gather any residue during the precipitation of the oil’s requested elements.
It has a diameter of 2.80 m. And a height of 5.80 m. Its capacity is approximately 40 cubic meters.
If we consider that the average family needs 8 olive oil, that is 140 kilos a year, then it would take 220 years to consume the oil that fits the tank.
The tank has been constructed with Marmaropetra from Taygetos and specifically from a quarry above Anogia.
It is estimated that the stones that were carved to make the tank are around 600 with dimensions ranging from 25 to 40 cm long, 20 to 30 centimeters tall, and 20 to 25 centimeters thick.
Externally there is concrete 15 cm thick consisting of a skyra of various sizes with a land of theraic mortar
