Carob Museum and Pastelopoieio Black Gold

An interesting insight into how they use the carob bean

The Carob Museum and Pastellopoieio was built in 1990, at a time when carobs were a major export of Cyprus. They were used to make a wide variety of products such as photographic film plates.

The museum is a stone-built traditional building where the visitor can watch the processing of locust. In the pastry shop, which is located in the same place behind the museum, one can watch the demonstration of pasta production and try various carob dishes.
