Do you want to discover the real spirit of the Cyclades islands? Attend the feast of the Assumption at Paros and you will find out the real Greek religious spirit!

During the Assumption Day pilgrims from all over Greece gather to Ekantotapyliani church to venerate the image of Panagia Ekatontapyliani (created in the 17th century) and take part in the festivities. 

After the procession of the epitaph, begins the great festival of the people, partying with traditional music, Parian wine, and local delicacies. At the same time, in the port of Naoussa Paros, dozens of boats approach the pier with lit torches. 

The view becomes more impressive with the arrival of ‘pirates’ who start the festival with island dances, the ”Balo” dance and other dances.
