Montemurlo Oil Feast

The Montemurlo Oil Festival is fairly recent, dating back to 1991 and was created by the Committee for the Recovery of the Fortress "Montemurlo Alto", since then the oil festival is made every year and all the Associations participate and promote their activities.
The Oil Feast is a manifestation combining the promotion of oil to the knowledge of the history and the excellences of the territory, in fact, in addition to the valorization of the gourmet oil of Montemurlo, the festival aims to make know and valorise, even outside the municipality, the castle of Montemurlo, known to all as the Fortress, with its characteristic features (the ancient parish church, the castle, the remains of the walls, the gates, the square, the frantoise). To this end, the aim is to restore the same place where the feast was held: the ancient village of the Fortress.
During the feast, which takes place on the last Sunday of November or the first Sunday of December, festivities are enriched by numerous side events such as entertainments, guided tours, exhibitions, music, gastronomic stands, etc.
