The old furnace, Agoriani

The historical furnace and lime kiln is located in an area of Agoriani called Neraidovrisi and has been there since at least the beginning of the 20th century, with evidence that it may have existed long before that. It was used for the melting of limestone and its conversion into lime. The workmen accumulated the limestone, collected wood, lit a fire and sealed it. Usually the rocks burned for three or more days and nights, which is why the area around the furnace was cleared completely, i.e. to collect wood. It was last used by Dimitrios Kafentzis around 1945 and today sadly the roof has caved in.
