Old olive press for restoration, for business purposes, Pinheirinho, Lourosa, Oliveira do Hospital

What is it?
This ruin was once the olive press in the region. Previously, the drive was through the creek that runs down the building, later he was driven by a fuel engine. The building is still full with the impressive remains of the olive press, as the granite output trays, millstones and the drive mechanism. The built area is 280 m². Although the building needs a complete restoration, many elements are good enough to be be preserved.

What about the facilities?
Water, electricity and sewage run along the ground and are easy to connect.

Is there an outside?
The corresponding land is 550 m² and is now mainly used as a vegetable garden.

Any specifics?
The building and its interiors exude the atmosphere of the past, when everybody had olive groves. In November and December the press was opened and the heavy stones squeezed the oil into liquid gold. It is a challenge to process these old elements in a contemporary context such as a restaurant.

Where is it?
The olive press is located on a paved road just outside the village of Pinheirinho. This village has no facilities, but just a few kilometers away is Casal do Abade with a cafe. Oliveira do Hospital and Tabua are about 10 km away. These central little towns have all kinds of facilities such as restaurants, shops, supermarkets, post office, banks, medical clinic, small hospital (Oliveira do Hospital), schools, library, bus station and weekly market. The larger city Coimbra is about 55 km away.
