AEGEAN ISLANDS

The old mines of Agios Sostis

You can go to Agios Sostis, where there were the ancient gold mines through an old paved trail starting from the road and leading towards Herronisos, or by inflatable. It is located on the NE part of the island. Arriving by the sea you can see the gallery of the silver mines which was constructed by the French Mining Company between 1883-1890. This is where the ores would be transferred for loading in Kamares. Above the galleries there are the ruins of initial Ai-Sostis which was demolsihed in order for the new church to be built next to it.
