Event Details

Xerotigana is the traditional sweet of Amorgos – it is also used in other Cycladic islands – made for Christmas and Easter, but also offered in weddings and baptisms along with traditional pastels.

A reference point to the local tradition of Amorgos, the Xerotigana, accompanies every joyful moment in the life of the Amorgians.

Every year in the summer the Festival of Xerotigana is organized. Visitors can watch the preparation process, try psimeniraki and dance along with the locals to the traditional local music.
