15th August in Santorini


After the morning service today, which usually starts at 7 am and ends after 10 am, at the church of "Panagia Episkopi" one of the oldest festivals in Greece takes place. The worshipers eat the traditional “panigyri” made of fava and local wine. So try a nutritious breakfast that you will remember for years to come and who knows, you may get used to having fava as breakfast!
In the courtyard of the Assumption of Virgin Mary in Akrotiri an authentic island feast is held this year with traditional “panigyri”, plenty of wine and dancing.

Come on, let's join the locals for breakfast and learn local customs and “panigyri” on these beautifully decorated churches with colorful little flags, which are ideal for photos! Since ... when in Rome, do as the Romans do!
