Close to the village of Skordilo (Σκορδίλο) and a place I have stopped at many times. I have always been oddly disappointed and have never shot here until this this last trip when suddenly it fell into place. This small building was open and a derelict Olive Oil factory suddenly revealed its beauty so a very enjoyable hour was spent here poking around. I'm assuming that the processing of the Olives has moved elsewhere as the factory seemed pretty stripped. Probably something to do with the remoteness of the place. Photos of the factory itself to follow in the coming weeks.
Skordilo (Σκορδίλο) is pretty isolated so there ain't much to see, but, if you have a mind to poke around then here is an aerial view of the area.

Ah, those days, those days where did they go?
They shuffled through our doorways.
Are they here?

Ah, those days, those days they follow us home
and peer through our windows.
And they're here?

For all our hoping
they're here.
