Metaxma Mine, Santorini, Greece

Site Information

The Metaxa mine is located at Megalochori village in Santorini, very close to the abrupt caldera cliffs. A total of 4,5 million m3 is estimated to have been extracted from the Metaxa mine, which contains the so-called LBA Famous Section (Antoniou et al., 1019), showing the layers of the Late Bronze Age (Minoan) eruption across a length of 150m. The Minoan eruption was the last plinian eruption of Santorini.
