The village is surrounded by greenhouses which demonstrates that the agriculture sector is modernised. There are many firms in related fields such as agriculture companies that co-operate with multinationals.In recent years there has been a lot of development in the village's standard of living. Young people can enjoy the presence of cafeterias, internet cafes, snack bars, kebab shops, and DVD rentals. Major shops are Linux cafe, gyrovolies, Joanna, Avantage and others. There are two relatively big supermarkets and several corner shops that give a good shopping and leisure environment to the community.The community enjoys high multicultural environment as a lot of immigrants live here and contribute to the local economy mainly as manual workers. The immigrants are mainly for countries of the former Communist block. The majority of them comes from Bulgaria and Albania, but also from countries such as Poland, Russia etc.Sports are highly popular in the village, especially football and basketball. The basketball team of Lygia won the double in the local championship of the Cretan League and got promoted in the Third National Division for the 2006-2007 season.
