The celebration of the Holy Seven Youths stands out for its distinctive features. It occurs within a secluded chapel nestled in a small cove known as “Mouzakia” between Oia and Imerovigli. Access to this location is exclusively by sea, with boats departing from Athinio, the Old Port of Fira, Ammoudi, or Mesa Gialos, specifically on the eve and the day of the festival. Each year on the 4th of August, this extraordinary island-style celebration takes place in a well-concealed church that symbolizes the cave where the Holy Seven Youths sought refuge in Ephesus to escape the persecutions targeting Christians. The ambiance is complemented by music, local wine, and the traditional fava bean dish, creating an authentic coastal festival dedicated to the Holy Seven Youths in Santorini. Furthermore, numerous participants opt to spend the night outdoors at the location, reveling in the traditional Cycladic festivities until the following day!
