Mining Tower

The history of mining on Kythnos started in antiquity and continued with mining galleries in Skouries, north of Lefkes beach, mining kilns, Katafyki cave in Dryopida, and more. Mining was most important on Kythnos in the years from 1873 to 1940, when iron was being mined on the island. This history is evident in almost every part of the island: abandoned galleries, bridges, buildings, and structures remind us of it. Here in Loutra we will find a big bridge for loading ore on ships that carried it to various markets. A little higher up, we will see a stone tower that was part of the mining complex.
