Thymiana, Chios

Thimiana is located 7 km to the South of the city of Chios, 10 min by car. It is among the larger villages on the island with approximately 1600 inhabitants. The village used to be called "Efthymiana", that is place renowned for its many quarries from which the "Thymiana" stone was extracted in many shades of brown and red.

Comment:A charming village. I don’t remember the name of the cafeneion, but I do recall the broad beans. There was a bakery opposite. if you needed the chemist it was on the right beyond the big church. nearby a good barber who cut your hair for 8 euros. I paid him 10, i was so happy.

Comment:There is a charming kafenion" in Thymiana where myself and my friends had a very warm welcome from the card playing ouzo drinkers. They shared their broad beans and radishes with us and bought us tumblers of kokkino krasi. Does anyone know the name of this cafe? Charles
