Discover Tympaki in Crete, an agricultural hub with plenty of activities to explore. Located on the west edge of the valley of Messara, Tympaki is a bustling town known for its early garden produce, citrus fruit, and olives. With the ideal weather for horticultural plants, visitors can explore the lush greenery. The name Tympaki is derived from the word "timvos," meaning tomb, as the first settlers of the town came from the nearby settlement of Agios Andreas, located on a tomb-like hill.
Experience modern facilities, including banks, post offices, doctors' offices, stores, schools, hotels, and restaurants, catering to the needs of both locals and visitors. Don't miss the open market ("pazari") at the town center every Friday, where local producers sell their delectable products such as fruit and vegetables, cheese, bread, and more. To fully experience all that Tympaki has to offer, rent a car and explore the surrounding area.
