    Where to shop

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The basic commercial area is at the port and generally up to the main shopping at the north. Some local cheese is very typical but a nice present will be the ouzo of Limnos.

    Ouzo is one of the most famous greek booze and people drink it often with fishes especially in the islands.

    Most of the shops use to close at noon and they open again in the afternoon.

  • Unique of its kind: Kalathaki Cheese of Limnos Island

    The “kalathaki” cheese variety originates in the island of Lemnos. It is worthwhile to taste and purchase it. Protected by an appellation of origin, it has won fans worldwide.

    It is a white cheese, round in shape and soaked in brine. It has small holes filled with droplets of fat. It ripens in a basket crafted from chaste tree stalks that leave an imprint on the surface of the cheese. It is made from sheep’s milk or a mixture of sheep’s and goat’s milk.
