Vagonetto: Fokida Mining Park
About 40 years ago the gallery was one of the first to open in the area of Giona for bauxite mining. Several years later the gallery and the area were transformed into the only theme park in Greece Vagonetto.
The Mining Park of Fokida – Vagoneto, is located at the 51st km of the national road Lamia – Amfissa. There, within an hour you will have the opportunity to get to know how the miners worked to extract the bauxite, to listen with headphones to what they were saying, to visit the adjacent exhibition space and to spend a unique experience on the bowels of the earth.
Discover the experience of bauxite mining and live the daily life of the miners through their own stories. Get on the train that took them to the gallery and “hear” them talking. Browse the exhibition and take a ‘virtual’ part in bauxite processing and mining. Relax in the traditional cafe located on site and finally visit the shop to buy unique souvenirs and gifts.
All you need to do is wear comfortable walking shoes in the gallery and warm clothes as it is damp. Prepare for a unique experience in the bowels of the earth!
