Iron Trails


Because of the many caves on the eastern side of Kythnos island, it can justly be described as the most fertile area on the island, as these caves provide extensive water supplies. But even though the eastern side is famed for its agricultural production, what makes it really special in our opinion, are the scattered remnants of the fascinating iron ore mining from the previous century.
