Fair at Panagia Episkopi

In the afternoon today, after the evening mass at 19.00, the church of "Panagia Episkopi" holds one of the oldest festivals in the Aegean and Greece. This year like every year, the eldest men and women along with the youngest, are going to set the fire for cooking at the surrounding area of Episkopi church. Crowds of worshipers gather in the churchyard to pray and eat the offered  local feast “panigyri” made of local “fava”, black eyed peas and of course local wine, like hundreds of years now.
