Overview

  Katalakko was not accidentally named so. Katalakkos in Greek means something put in a pit. The village fits its name as it is built in a region surrounded by many hills. In 1856 the church of Aghios Modestos was found. Aghios Modestos is the Saint who protects the stock-breeders, especially their cattle. On the 18th of December - when the Saint is honoured - many kechaghiades used to come to Kalakko from their mandres. Kechaghiades in the local dialect means stock-breeders and mandra is their farm house. These kechaghiades used to wear white breeches, a white cap and leather shoes called tservoulia. They danced local dances, like the kechaghiadikos and the patma.
