VAGONETTO - FOKIDA MINING PARK
Vagonetto is the means that will travel you back in time and introduce you to the history of bauxite mining. Fokida Mining Park is located at the 51st kilometer of the national highway Lamia - Amfissa, to the south of Gravia. One of the galleries that had been opened for the underground exploitation of bauxite, gallery 850, closed in 1972 due to depletion of the mineral. After 26 years of "silence", the gallery was converted into a visiting area, so that the public can get to know all about the history of bauxite.
