Details of the course: The abandoned olive oil atelier in the village of Gölcük has neither a roof nor any walls; however it creates an impression of an open-air museum since the stones and the machinery are still there.
You can go to the village of Gödence after visiting the atelier in Gölcük. Gödence is among the most important villages of the region due to the fact that it realizes most of the olive oil production of the region, and has a cooperative which has been working for over forty years now. In Gödence, there are three olive oil ateliers, one of which is a continuous system atelier. The Çalıkoğlu Flour and Olive Oil Factory, with an oil engine system, was established in 1937 by Süleyman Bey. There is also the Ünal Olive Oil and Flour Factory which is still working.
