Easter on Kythera
The best time for a traveller to enjoy the island’s natural beauty is spring. Green hills with thousands of flowers and scents will make you spend unforgettable Easter holidays. Especially on Great Friday, when the procession of the Epitaph takes place, it is accompanied with bonfires and fireworks. Hundreds of cans with flammable material, that create a dreamy atmosphere, are placed across the harbour. On Easter day, locals and guests become one, enjoying the traditional roasted lamb on the spit at the local taverns.
