The Epitaph of Agia Grigorousa in Kastraki, Naxos, which is made of sea wood and decorated with a few wildflowers, is awe-inspiring, as is its journey through the sea. So is the image of Christ on the cross nailed to a sand dune by the sea
A large number of believers attended the Good Friday procession and the procession of the Epitaph in the sea, in Agia Grigorousa, in Kastraki, Naxos, in the presence of the Parliamentary representative and MP of Cyclades, Mr. Ioannis Vroutsis, the Prefect of Naxos, Mr. Ioannis Margaritis, the Mayor Naxos and Small Cyclades Mr. Dimitris Lianiou, members of the Municipal Authority, the leader of the “Together We Change” faction Leonardos Hatziandreou and the Candidate Mayor of Naxos and Small Cyclades Mr. Manolis Polykretis.
A custom that takes place every year in this particular area of the island, with visitors as well as permanent residents of Naxos, participating and reverently watching the religious events of Great Friday at the seaside chapel of Agia Grigorousa, in the area of Polichni.
The Epitaph is made of sea wood and minimally decorated, at the same time that he is accompanied by the chants of the faithful, in his circumambulation, within the sea.
Close to the spot is also the Crucified, a Cross made of sea wood, which complements a custom that has been established in recent years in Kastraki of Naxos and is known for its special character.
