Re-enactment of ‘Christ crucifixion’ in Kathikas

Kathikas village in Paphos region is known locally for its grand Easter traditions, which visitors are welcome to watch during the period of Greek Orthodox Easter.

More specifically, on Holy Friday, it is customary to reconstruct the ‘Passion of the Christ’, where the President of the Community Council assumes the role of Jesus, and carries the cross from the chapel of Agios Onouphrios up until Panagia Evaggelistria church, with the rest of the villagers following in a procession.

The good weather favours visitors from all over the island, if they want to attend the ritual.
