Event Details

Amorgos is a mysterious place during Easter. Some customs go back to the Byzantine period. On Good Friday, the scent of sage and oregano will be all over the island. The herbs are spread on the steps and lit by candles when the “Epitaphios” passes. On Easter Saturday at midnight, the liturgy ends with the blessing and lighting of the “lambadas” (Easter candles) then everyone goes outside to enjoy the fantastic fireworks. The fast breaks in the night with the traditional soup “Mageritsa”. Easter Sunday brings a scent of Amorgos when everyone has the goat turning over the fire. In the afternoon, people gather in the village for the burning of Judas and the traditional games.
