Τhe old custom of the Mastela (at Easter)
At Pinia, in the old town’s commercial centre, the old custom of the Mastela (or Barrel) has been revived in recent years. A barrel is filled with water and decorated with myrtles and coloured ribbons. Passers-by drop in coins and each makes a wish. After church bells peal for the “First Resurrection” the first person to dive into the barrel takes all coins and is subsequently drenched in water. Organized by OKE.
