Cicca Hypogeum Oil Mill

SAC-B-023

My entrance is the same level as outside ground level. After a first wide room with a barrel vault, you then enter the hypogeum through a narrow staircase. Visible, in the hypogeum, are the remains of grinders, pressers from Genova with their oil containers and the sciave for the storage of oil.
