Festival of Agia Sofia
A special festival takes place on September 19 at the quaint whitewashed church of Agia Sofia, in the village of Mersini. After the morning Divine Liturgy, faithful are served boiled meat in the church yard. Then, they all go to the nearby water spring which is located under a huge plane tree, and the feast begins. The sound of traditional music makes them dance for hours. At the same time plenty of wine and food is available for all people who participate in the feast.
