Museum Olei Histriae

House of Istrian Olive Oil

The olive tree is a symbol of the Mediterranean. We could also say that the Mediterranean is where olives grow. In Istria the tree has given much since ancient times; food, medicine, fuel and material for the production of different objects. For thousands of years it has been central to Istrian lives.

The House of Istrian Olive Oil located in the center of Pula tells the story of olive growing in Istria through history to the present day. Discover why Istrian olive oil was highly valued by the ancient Romans and how it was processed. Find out how olive oil is produced today and the secrets of creating an extra virgin olive oil of premium quality.

Every visitor can enjoy an expert guided olive oil tasting and education, and find a large selection of top quality Istrian extra virgin olive oils, as well as a range of other Istrian products in the museum shop.
