Keramos Community - Overview

  Keramos emerges from the mountains of Amani and Pelineo through thick and rich vegetation. It was, for many decades, one of the most important villages of Amani due to the mining of antimony. The village is almost 14km from Volissos, at the beginning of the road that connects the road network of Amani with the villages of Leptopoda and Kambia.
  You can see the mines and the pitheads of antimony, which are still preserved and were operating up to the mid sixties. The galleries, the premises of the company that had exploited them until recently, the chemical laboratory, the kiln, and the chimney as well as the equipment of the premises are going to be collected by the local authorities in order to create an industrial museum of antimony, a unique of its kind within the Balkan region.
