Easter is the grandest religious feast for Greek Orthodox Christians. But it is also the great celebration of nature, rebirth, joy, life! In the heart of spring, visitors to Amorgos will enjoy unparalleled natural beauty, as well as the unique opportunity to join the locals in the Easter celebrations and traditions. These include a candlelit procession in Chora on Good Friday, Christ’s myrrh in Tholaria, and the traditional – and raucous – group games played in church courtyards on Easter Sunday. Also on Easter Sunday, priests and locals travel to Chozoviotissa Monastery and accompany the monastery's icons around the island on foot, blessing every home, field, person and animal!
