The northeastern side of Halkidiki has a long history which is mostly marked by the involvement of the inhabitants in the mining activity.

Milos lies on the South Aegean volcanic arc. The volcanos of the island may be dormant today, however there are several indications on the island that its surface communicates with the interior of the Earth.

Nissiros volcano emerged from the sea 200,000 years ago to form a cone of land. As it continued to erupt over the following years, molten fragments of stone were released in the atmosphere, only to cool down again as they fell on the ground to eventually form layers of volcanic ash.
