Museum in Riogordo

Riogordo Ethnographic Museum

This museum in Riogordo is a little wonder to visit. The interior and the whole structure are to be seen. Inside you will find the tools of yesteryear used in the fields and houses (see photos below).

You will also discover how food, oil and wine were stored.

Seeing a molienda (olives crush in the museum)

During the Feria of Molienda , which takes place at the end of February each year, the museum in Riogordo is the scene of several events. We can discover the manufacture of olive oil as it was practiced there is little time still. With the help of a donkey, a system of stones that crush the olives is activated: a molienda.

Riogordo is famous for its olive oil of the verdial variety (to taste on the spot and it is the occasion to bring back a very beautiful memory of Andalucian gastronomy).

It is one of my favorite museums in Axarquia in Andalucia.
