Fest in Virgin Mary Fidoussa in Markopoulo

Markopoulo of Kefalonia is the result of the large settlement of 1507 that the Venetians attempted to create in Elios and Pronnoi. The most important attraction of Markopoulo and one of the most remarkable sites of the island is the Virgin Mary Fidousa or Lagouvarda known for the appearance of snakes all over Greece and abroad  Looking back in time we find traditions that have been spread by mouth and help us to realize the rather random location of this temple , and look for the miraculous appearance of snakes. In this temple on August 14th there is a big festival where crowds and vendors are gathered and entertain.
