On the Road from Paros, you will see typical brown signs with yellow letters. Pavement few hundred meters looks new (and expensive), but there is not only one information about, what you are about to see. With mobile light, we had no courage to step down more than few meters. What a pity.

The place is beautiful however there shouldn't be such a big hype about it. It's quite a hike from the beginning all the way to the top. ( If you continue walking up you will reach a church) . Right to the left of the entrance is one point that goes deep underground , there is one marble quarry and... More

We visited the quarry on a hot day. The ruins of the old bulidings did not have any kind of information. There are several shafts and we went into the one which seemed to be mostly visited. In the shaft/cave you enjoy cold air, slippery floor, darkness and spots of white marble. The fences put up to prohibit entrance was... More

Just an abandoned hole in the ground. My Road Scholar tour went there and I don't understand why--perhaps killing time? I deleted all my photos because, really, who wants to keep picture of a hole in the ground? ALSO--if you're at all wobbly as a walker, don't go. The path is uphill and gravel. We had a couple of people... More

We seen it on our map and that how we got there with our ATV's... once there, it was hard to know where to go and what there was to see. We didn't see any signs or explanations. It seems like there was a man living in a camper or something really close to the quarries so we weren't sure... More

This place is older than the Parthenon! Think about that? It has been hollowed out from the inside like the Great Pyramid.The ceiling is the same slope same angle! My dog BuBu would not go down there. The energy was too powerful! He kept barking the whole time we were down there. When we finally came out hours later it... More

You can go there yourself, get down to the quarries, but it is a scary place to visit on your own. There is no light there, extremely dark. We went in there for 50 metres and it was beautiful to see the marble at the walls. Though it was too scary to get further into the cave.

Interesting to see were and how they mined in the 1890. It was also interesting for us, the youth too see the quarry. A plus was that the temperature in the mines was lower than the outside temperature. Only downside was that it was necessary to have some light to go "far" into the cave.

So this is among the oddest tourist sites I have ever been to - a bit hard to find. When you follow the signs of the main rod you ar directed to a long winding dirt road. At some point not too farin when you start seeing some ancient preserved buildings, there is a fork in the road with a... More
