We found this place very intriguing. People are correct there isn’t any information but we didn’t find that to be an issue. We were happy to walk around and follow the roads/tracks on our own. There are signs in place at the caves to say enter at your risk. We decided not to and still found it worth seeing. Our highlight was the sweet man selling hand carved marble trinkets. He doesn’t speak much English but he still tried to communicate with us. He was very passionate and I wish for his sake that we spoke Greek. He was honestly the highlight of our trip, if anything just buy something from him!

We went to the marble mine and found real treasure! The treasure was the lovely man who has a shop with his marble sculptures. He has wonderful sculptures,many in traditional cycladic styles at great prices and he is very kind, giving us some basil from his garden. We went back to our apartment and made the most Delicious salad with his basil. Thank you kind one, for your generosity and time you shared with us and our children. Then we went into the mines and it was a real adventure for our boys, we saw the ancient cave drawings and writings and felt the refreshing cool air from the caves, a delight on a hot summers day. We continued along the number 3 track and walked to lefkes village. This was a challenge as it is not sign posted very well, and we went wrong a few times, some of the track was overgrown with prickly plants. The scenery was fantastic, you go up a ridge and can see almost all over the island. We went through a farm with goats and melons, vineyards and a few lovely fig trees and past Churches.

We didn't visit caves, but a workshop there, with simply but nice marble hand-made things (which you can buy). A man there doesn't speak English, but very friendly.

We found this on our own and walked into the cave. It was pretty cool. The old man that everyone say is there to sell his goods was not the day we were; it was his granddaughter. We did buy a carved marble cross from her though.

There is nothing there, just area' that were once used as a stone quarry. A lovely walkway takes you half way then a dirt track.
