Feast in Perissa

In the large church of Perissa, which is dedicated to the Holly Cross, a big traditional fest is taking place tomorrow. After the morning mass, the Cross and its icon is carried around the building, and then the “panigyri” begins. The food that is shared among the christening is Fava, olives, bread and wine. At the “kollada”, the open area under the significant rock in the end of the beach of Perissa, ridders with their decorated horses present some kind of a show. After that every one participates in the fest dancing under the live music of traditional instruments and singers. Don’t miss it!
