A unique event takes place every Easter’s eve in Vrontados. The flocks of the churches of Agios Markos and Panagia Ereithiani –facing each other across the village’s ravine- exchange a shower of home made rockets, aiming for the opponents bell tower. The rockets’ manufacture begins right after Easter and lasts a whole year! Don’t miss the awesome site of thousands of rockets cruising in the air. During Carnival, many of the island’s villages re-enact the traditional “Aga trial”, with the inhabitants acting out the roles in a satirical fashion.
