Easter celebrations

are upon us, the lights are up in the villages and the paths are being cleared ready for the various processions that will be taking place over the next few days.

On Friday the boat will leave from in front of the square in Gaios around 3.30/4pm to go to Panagia island. Later in the day the icons will move from various churches, 8.45pm from Agios Panagia in Loggos, 9.30pm from Agios Andreas in Lakka and 10pm from Agios Apostille in Gaios.

On Saturday night in the 3 main villages there will be fire-works at mid night to mark the celebrations.

On Monday, the 3 icons move again, in Gaios this will take place at 11am.

Wishing you a very Happy Easter.
