Milos rose out of the Aegean Sea in the midst of submarine volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and tsunamis. This enriched its ground with many minerals. The island has an 11.000-year mining history, it is home to one of the oldest mines in the Mediterranean. Its geology and mining tradition are showcased at the Milos Mining Museum. Some of the minerals that you will find on the island are Perlite, Kaolin, Bentonite, Barite, Manganese, Sulphur, Obsidian, Pozzolan, Gypsum and Diatomite. Apart from minerals there are many more a traveler can discover. There are two craters which visitors can go into and around. Milos has warm soils and hot springs, the spring of Lakkos in Adamas (Hippocrate's Cave) which is in a cave, has been known as a thermal spa with healing properties. Traveling around the island you will see vapor coming out from land and sea! In some places the vapor is so hot that you can cook on the ground, like the Paleochori beach where you can try food cooked on the sand!
