The 25th March

is a day of celebration marking the independence of Greece, it is a national holiday.

Our local band perform in the square of Gaios and the children from pre-school to high school lead a parade along the waterfront, the celebrations culminate with Greek dancing in traditional dress.

Typically on this day salted cod (Bakaliaros) is prepared and served with garlic potatoes (skordalia), we enjoyed a traditional lunch at Carnayo restaurant in Gaios.
