Mykonos, Tragonisi, Festival of the Virgin Mary
The Panagia (Our Lady or Virgin Mary) Church on the island of Tragonisi is celebrated on the 11th of June. The boat trip from Mykonos’ Kalafatis beach to the island takes half an hour. Since there is no pier, the boats are tethered side by side on the rocks. It takes another half an hour to climb a rigorous trail to reach the small chapel of Panagia. After the liturgy, the men-only visitors, having brought their own food, settle down in a nearby red rock cavity to feast and celebrate.
