The Vieux Château Oil Mill is the oldest building in Mérindol, a village in the Luberon. Built at the end of the 16th century, it bears witness to four centuries of olive oil production.
The mill is still working today. Olives are gathered in a traditionally festive atmosphere during November and December of each year, before extracting this oil that is considered sacred by Provençal people.
Olive growing has shaped the landscape, forming an integral part of the local population's lives for generations.
