Good Friday in Omodos.













Good Friday morning we drove up to the picturesque village of Omodos to see how the locals celebrate this traditional holiday. The local church of The Holy Cross was packed full with local residents. The Church was decorated with colourful gardinias and numerous candles.

We then sat outside the local coffee house in the cobbled village sqaure and watched the young children play with their sparkler fireworks.
We then took the chance to wander through all the tiny backstreets of the village that are dotted with old village wineries, small tavernas and lace shops.
