Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Olives, Oil, a fruit, a tree, a symbol
From classical times, the olive tree, according to myth, was offered up as a divine gift to man, given by the Goddess Athena to Athenians who bestowed her name to their city in recognition of her sacred bequest. It is a gift which throughout history has been known for its salutary and nutritional benefits for man’s aesthetic as well as physical well-being. It is an eternal tree which has represented a symbol of peace, prosperity and victory and the olive wreath was the hard sought for prize awarded to athletes in the ancient Olympic Games as a mark of their prowess and achievements. In the historical place of the upmost peace festival, in Olympia, the ¨Eleones Olympias¨ is placed.
