Corfu Easter videos
Tomorrow is Palm Sunday. There will be a big procession in Corfu Town which will mark the opening of the Easter festivities.
Like every year, we are expecting lots of visitors from other parts of Greece.
Here are some videos I found in YouTube where you can see how unique is Easter in Corfu.
I think you still have the time to book your Easter holidays and see yourself how special is this time of the year in our island.
The Philarmonic Society of Corfu playing Albinoni's "Adagio" in the Epitaph of Metropolis.
The Mantzaros Filarmonic Society playing "Caldae Lacrime" at the Epitaph of S. Spyridon in Easter Saturday morning.
The old Philarmonic of Corfu playing Faccio's "Amlet":
Coverage of the Epitaph of Saint Spyridon by local Corfu channel
After the Epitaph of Saint Spyridon, the first Resurrection takes place and the bands play cheerful marches.
At exactly 11 a.m. the first Resurrection takes place and is signified with the "botides"(clay pots) being thrown from the windows and balconies when the first "botos" (bell ring) is heard.
The fireworks after the Resurrection Mass are spectacular
In Easter Sunday there are many processions around Corfu Town
