This olive tree has been declared by the Association of Cretan Olive Municipalities as a natural monument because of shape, relief trunk and its connection with historical events. It is located at position Anisaraki, by Kantanos, where there are dozens of other ancient olive trees. Its variety is called mastoid and is grafted on a rootstock of a wild olive tree.

The trunk has a very large cavity in which the Christians found refuge during the Ottoman rule (1866-1897 revolutions), but also during the German Occupation.
