The “Firewalking of Langadas” at 21,22,23 of May

Every year on the feast of Saints Constantine and Helen, the town revives the custom of the firewalking (in greek Anastenaria).

According to tradition, when a fire once broke out in the church of Saints Constantine and Helen, the villagers, defying the danger, entered the church to save the sacred icons, with the help of which they emerged intact from the flames.

The name “Anastenaria” comes from the “Anastenari”, that means the icon that they hold in their hands throughout the festival and is considered the supreme leader of the “Anastenarians” (people who walking on fire)
