Easter 2017

Easter for the Orthodox church this year is a little early, on April 16th, so the Sunday of Thomas is on April 9th and the other holidays are on Friday 14th and the second day of Easter on the 17th, the other related to Easter celebrations will continue until the Sunday after Easter on April 23.

Roughly events almost every year have become traditions that followed almost the same order.
Top are those of the falls of large pots from the windows of buildings around Liston in the morning of Holy Saturday during the so-called first resurrection.
This Custom happens around the island but has a special beauty in the Esplanade Square and the point of Pentofanaro next to Liston, due to the environment and the presence of a big crowd.
Also the ceremony of Resurrection at Sunday midnight to Sunday, every year in the Upper Square.

See these and many other events of Holy Week with the details here.
