Karpathos - Local Tourism Organisation
 

Local Events and Celebrations.

  The customs of Karpathos pass on from generation to generation
unaltered and people follow the ceremony of the celebrations with reverence.

  It is worth referring to the small chapels that are scattered throughout
the whole island which "belong" to families who must be the ones to organize the celebration of "their" chapel.

The uniqueness of these celebrations is because the traditional food served is made from the people of the church, it is offered free to the guests and
is followed by traditional Karpathian songs and dances with the traditional Karpathian instruments: Lyra, Laouto, Tsambouna, and Violi.

Karpathian Music
With "mandinades"
-instantly made songs-, the Karpathians sing
about the beauty of their island.

And in fact,
the magic and the variety of the natural landscape is unique.
