Easter in Leonidio

The Easter celebration in Leonidio is a unique experience.

All the parishes compete each-other every year for the most beautiful Epitaph, whose procession is met in the town’s center, where they chant all together with a common prayer.
The celebration’s peaks in Leonidio is on the night of Resurrection, when the construction and the elevation of colorful hot-air balloons take place, lightening gratefully the Tsakonian sky, a uniquely spectacular custom.

On Easter Sunday afternoon, during the Ceremony of Love in Leonidio, the reading of the Gospel is made in the Tsakonian dialect.
