At Patounis Soap Factory, you'll learn that not all soaps are created equal. In continuous operation since the 19th century, the factory uses traditional production methods to create a line of pure olive soaps. A living reminder that family-run, traditional businesses can survive in the modern world and thrive thanks to exports, the factory still features tools and equipment from the 1890s. In the summer, you can take a free guided tour of the premises to see the production process and learn about this important local industry. Check the website for more info and opening hours.

  • Unique product worldwide, unique place to visit, you really get inside the time capsule when you get in there... going back to the 1800s when the soap factory started production.
  • Small factory with plenty of regular soap in wooden boxes. Nothing impresive.
  • The best factory in Corfu. It is a gem from the past. Definitely visit it and buy the traditional soaps!
  • Not there anymore
  • TRADITIONAL GREEN SOAP AND WORTH TO VISIT AND PURCHASE
