Thiorichia (meaning "sulfur mines" in Greek) is an abandoned mine on Paliorema
beach of Milos
and it serves as a tourist attraction. You can find it also under the name Paliorema Mine but on the signs it is marked as "Thiorichia". The mine was operating until the middle of 20 century, exporting large quantities of sulfur and other minerals, but after that it closed (according to some sources - because many fatal accidents started to happen).
Near the building of the mine you can see old wagons, mining tools and spare parts, all left in the same condition as during the time when the mine was operating. You can also go inside the premises and some of the tunnels but it is not very safe. The beach in front of the mine is a strange place to go for swimming and sunbathing but it is definitely a unique spot.
Thiorichia is accessible via a road which starts from Zephyria
village. Most of the route is unpaved and ends about 500 meters before the mine - after that you have to walk on a wide path which is forbidden for cars.
