THE CHAPEL OF PROPHET ELIAS
The Chapel of Prophet Elias was built in 1981 by the people of Sarakinoi, Megaplatanos and Orma approximately 1,5 km West of Megaplatanos. The chapel has a small water spring, to the water of which, many religious people attribute healing properties. The inhabitants of the three aforementioned villages traditionally visit the chapel on July 20th to celebrate the name day of its patron saint Prophet Elias. On that particular day visitors bring various delicacies, which are shared among everyone following the conclusion of Mass, in a traditional, open feast.
