The geography of Serifos distinguishes for the mines located on the western side of the island, near Megalo Livadi. These mines were very popular in the ancient times and provided Greece with material to construct houses and tempels. Its exploitation started again in the late 19th century and played an important role in the recent history of the island. Today, they are closed.
