Mitata (Cheese Houses) in Nida

On the way to Nida, and in Nida itself, there are the "mitata", small round rooms for making cheese. The mitata are made of stone and their roofing is a dome constructed in the tradition of Minoan tombs, e.g. by placing successive layers of stones towards the centre of the circle until it is closed.
