Project Description

Saint George’s church is the central church of the village of Pera Triovasalos. If you visit it, it is worth observing the marble plate overlooking the entrance of the church depicting Saint George riding his horse, its marble icon screen and the mosaic by the folklore artist Petros Rapanakis which is in the church yard.

When you visit the church of Saint Spyridonas or the church of Saint George on Easter Sunday, you can watch the ‘’burning of Judas”, a custom dated from the early Christian times and which is revived until the present day. This custom is combined also with the custom of “baroutiou-gun powder” as the young people of the two villages, of Triovasalos and Pera Triovasalos, throw dynamites in a space between the two churches, each one contesting for the title of the winner. The winner is the village that will make most of the noise and that will blow up most of the dynamite.
