Easter in Santorini PDF Print E-mail

Easter is the beginning of the Summer season for Santorini.
But fist of all, Easter is a great Orthodox holiday for people in Santorini.
Many Easter customs have been preserved for many years.

  • The red textiles at the balconies every Maundy Thursday,
  • the smell of  "tsoureki" and "melitinia"  a local dessert especially cooked for Easter,
  • the streets of Pyrgos (a village on the mountain) lighten by thousands of oil-lamps on Good Friday, and
  • the meeting of the two Epitaphs, in the central square of Fira
    are only a sample.
The Easter atmosphere and customs in combination with the shining Spring, makes Easter in santorini an experience to live!
