Tradition

Easter on the island is of particular beauty. The houses and whitewashed courtyards shine. The piety of the Holy Week is followed by the joy of the first Resurrection on Holy Saturday.

 

An oven is lit in all yards in which the "mououri" with the lambs will be baked and Easter is celebrated with huge splendour on the next day.

 

 Moreover, the houses of the island have unique beauty. The oldest are renovated and new ones are built traditionally.

   

They maintain the design, colours and mainly the beautiful courtyards with the pitharia (big ceramic pots) between flowers.

 

 Kalymnians feel and believe in the power of tradition of their island, a tradition that constitutes the foundation for the next generations.
