Fair in Pyrgos

Tomorrow morning, on the eve of the feast of Holy Apostles, there will be fair in their church in Pyrgos and local flavors will be offered to attendees.
To reach the church, follow the road to Prophet Elias Monastery. Then take the trail that starts on the left, at the wooden path sign and passes by the interesting church of Agioi Apostoloi with its white dome.
A few details about the church, also known as the School of Martinus. It used to operate as a religious boarding school for children.

 The students stayed in rooms around the church, which are now unfortunately destroyed. The boarding school operated from 1803 until about 1845.
