Easter on Spetses

If you happen to be on Spetses during Easter, you will have the chance to see up close and be part of the celebrations on Bouboulina's island. On Good Friday, follow the litany to Poseidoniou Square. On Easter Saturday, visit the Church of the Ascension in Analpsis, where after "Christ is Risen", the youngsters burn an old boat while the sky fills with fireworks.

Easter celebrations culminate on Easter Sunday with the traditional burning of Judas in Kounoupitsa.
