Sights - Metallia

A few words about Metallia..

This is the area where the remains of the mining establishments of Limenaria contrast with the blue of the sea and constitute a great reason for exploring the area.

South of “Palataki”, office headquarters of the German company Speidel that was managing the mines, at a bay called “Metalleia” (Mines), spread out on a steep slope are the half-demolished buildings of the metal processing installations.  In front of them and to the north one can distinguish the well preserved furnaces used for metal-making and to the south an artificial hill of slag, which splits the beach in two halves.

“Palataki”, which housed offices and workshops, the old stone aqueduct used for the water supply of the installations and the mining warehouses, where these days various cultural events take place, compose the scenery.
