Chapel of Profitis Ilias

If you find yourself in Sougia on 19 July, you can join in the festival of Profitis Ilias  (Prophet Elias), celebrated on 20 July. The faithful take the boat to Trypiti beach (east of Sougia) the previous afternoon and then walk up the path leading to the chapel of Profitis Ilias, 400 metres above the sea. After the service they spend the night there with music and feasting, returning to Sougia the next day.
