Upcoming Events

This is an outline of the events that take place in the area of our walks :

Greek Easter. In the villages of Crete, the people build a wooden model of Judas on Easter Saturday afternoon. When the clock strikes 12:00 midnight, the priest reads the relevant chapter from the bible and the locals light a fire, to “burn Judas”. People greet each other with Christos Anesti! (Christ is risen !) and Alithos Anesti ! (He is truly risen!) as a response, while they bring back home their lit candles to bless their house. After enjoying the traditional magiritsa soup, the challenge of the red eggs awaits everyone.

Festival of Agios Dikaios. Celebration with live local music and traditional food in the center of the village Elos.
