VAGONETTO - FOKIDA MINING PARK
The Vagonetto is the medium that will take you back in time and introduce you to the history of bauxite mining. Fokida Mining Park is located at the 51st kilometer of E.O. Lamia - Amfissa, south of Gravia. One of the galleries that had been opened for the underground exploitation of bauxite, the 850 portico, was closed in 1972 due to depletion of the mineral.
After 26 years of "silence" the gallery was transformed into a visiting place so that the public can learn the history of bauxite.
