KALIOPI Village LEMNOS (LIMNOS)

Overview

  According to tradition, Kalli was a woman who owned large areas of fertile land. Her obedients created the village Kalliopi. Her sarcophagus - made of marble and decorated with engraved representations - is built in a wall that surrounds the cemetery of the village. The church of Aghios Georgios was built in 1869. Aghios Ceorgios is honoured with horse races. The riders compete on horses without saddles. The winner, after running around the temple three times, accepts the prize from the priest at the ante-temple and goes into the church on the horse to light a candle in honour of the saint. The prize once was a lamb with a red ribbon around its neck. Today it is just a medal with a red ribbon.
