MARKOPOULO Village KEFALLONIA

Overview

A village built on a rise with a superb panoramic view. Each year around mid-August in Markopoulo the snakes of the Panagia make their appearance. These are small harmless snakes which have the sign of the cross on their heads. On the day of the festival of the Panagia the snakes go into the church and up onto the silver icon of the Virgin. Is it a miracle or a way station for the snakes as they make their way to some place warmer? According to contemporary reports, in 1953, the year of the big earthquakes, the snakes did not make their appearance. It is characteristic that the snakes of the Panagia disappear on 15th August after the liturgy or after the church festival.
