Today, the quarry is no longer in operation but it is open to public. Visiting its premises as well as the tunnels, wearing the necessary equipment for your protection, is a very interesting experience. Ancient and modern facilities are maintained and many minerals are still on the walls of the quarry for you to see.
Vouliagmeni Lake: A natural, oval-shaped pool of incomparable beauty, with the entrance to a 3.125 meters long underwater cave opened at its bottom. The water comes out from springs 50 to 100 meters deep. The temperature of the lake is stable between 22ο C and 29οC all year long. It is estimated that the level of the lake exceeds by 50cm the level of the sea and thus it flows into the sea due to the overflow. In this way, the water of the lake is constantly renewed by its hot springs. The therapeutic effects of the hot spring derives from its qualities and the constituents of the water (potassium, sodium, lithium, ammonium, calcium, ferrum, chloride, iodine and a small amount of radiation)
