About LavrionLavrion is a small town on the south eastern side of Attica, 40 km from Athens and 7 km from Sounion. This town was very important in the ancient times due to the mines of silver, one of the main sources of income for Athens. Silver was used for coin cutting and for the funding of the Athenian fleet.
The mines of Lavrion stopped working in the Roman times and they remained abandoned for many centuries. They started working again from the late 19th century till the mid 20th century. This time, Lavrion developed a lot and was connected by railway with the centre of Athens. Over the last years, the port of Lavrion has developed and in summer it serves ferries to many islands of Cyclades and Northern Aegean.
