Marmorgruvene i Marathi
« på: 16. Sep. 14, 17:42:02 »
Langs veien mellom Parikia og Lefkes ligger den lille landsbyen Marathi. Her ligger det noen nedlagte marmorgruver oppe i fjellsiden. Vi har mange ganger vurdert å stoppe her, men det har ikke blitt før i sommer.

Litt info:   
Sitat
The inland road to Lefkes and Marpissa will take you up the side of a mountain to the marble quarries at Marathi, source of the famous Parian marble. Ancient sculptors prized Parian marble for its translucency and fine, soft texture, and they used it for much of their best work, including the Hermes of Praxiteles and the Venus de Milo. The turnoff to the quarries is signposted, and an odd, rather foolishly monumental, marble-paved path leads up the valley toward (but not to) a group of deserted buildings and the ancient quarries. The buildings, to the right of the path, once belonged to a French mining company, which, in 1844, quarried the marble for Napoleon's tomb; the company was the last to operate here. The quarry entrances are about 46m (150 ft.) beyond the marble path's end, on the left. The second, wide quarry on the left has a 3rd-century-B.C. relief of the gods at its entrance, encased in a protective cage. In Roman times, as many as 150,000 slaves labored here, working day and night to the flickering lights of thousands of oil lamps. There isn't much to see today inside the quarries, in which case you'll find it irresistible to explore the deep caverns opened by the miners high above the valley. Bring a flashlight, wear appropriate clothing, and don't explore alone.

Så noen bilder fra stedet....
