Religious festivities

Traditions that have travelled intact through time

Naxos religious festivities

What makes Naxos religious festivities so interesting is the fact that they usually take place in the villages of Naxos, which are well populated and, during the tourist season, attract many more people. They have acquired such fame that it is not just the locals that attend. Many tourists find them equally exciting. Such celebrations reveal the real island life and the customs that have travelled through the centuries.

The people of Naxos have retained their religious traditions and passed them on so that the spirit of the past remains unchanged. Most young Naxians follow in the steps of their forefathers, keeping the bond with the past alive. This is what makes these festivities truly remarkable and appealing.
