Thimiana
Place Image: 

Thymiana is a fairly large village known for its quarries which supplied the island with the reddish brown "Thymiana" stone. The church of St Efstratios with the pebbled courtyard was constructed with the same stone in 1890. The haven of the village is Agia Ermioni and the nearby beaches are Karfas, Mega Limnionas and Agia Fotia. Thymiana is well known for its carnival called "Mostra". It's a 3-day Carnival during which old customs revive and many guests are gathered to celebrate.
