Posted by John Smith on October 7th, 2019

The Varkala festival takes place in Corfu, Greece on the Saturday closest to 11 August. Indeed, it was on August 11, 1716, that the miracle of Saint Spyridon took place.

The latter would have saved the island which was at that time besieged by the Turks. For the occasion, the festivities are numerous and to the delight of tourists, part of the events take place in Corfu and another takes place in the bay of Paleokastritsa, north of the city.

At the Varkarola Festival, decorated boats parade along the bay while traditional bands sing and dance. The end of the festivities is marked by the firing of a boat and giant fireworks that refer to the fire of the Turkish Navy during the siege of the seventeenth century. Enjoy this beautiful festival with Nautical charts Greece.
