Prophet Elias


Tomorrow many churches in Greece celebrate, since Prophet Elias is honored on July 20 every year. The churches bearing his name stand at the top of hills and mountains. In Santorini, the monastery of Prophet Elias dominates at the highest point of the island, but other churches are also dedicated to the saint: in Emporio (on the hill with the windmills), Imerovigli, Exo Gonia and Kera in Thirasia. In these churches you can attend the mass at around 7 to 10 in the morning and some are holding a fair after the mass.
