Greek Festival – Easter in Corfu

Greek Festival – Easter in Corfu

The celebration of Easter in Corfu is really a unique experience carrying elements from the Roman Catholic community and Orthodox religion. On Holy Friday, the local bands of the island accompany the litany of Epitaphios which is decorated with season’s flowers. All churches of Corfu are gathering in Spianada Square, Corfu Town. Preparations start from the early morning hours for the Holy Saturday where locals celebrate the first resurrection throwing clay pots from their balconies in Corfu town. This particular custom is very characteristic of Easter in Corfu.

Panagiotis V.
