Monuments: Aliki Quarries of Thasos Quarries

The Aliki quarries on the southern coast of Thasos were a major source of calcitic white marble. The faces of the more than 27 different quarrying sites identified to date testify to the demand for this material; some reach heights of 15-20 m. Material could be loaded straight from these coastal quarries onto waiting ships and sockets for cranes are still visible.
