The traditional event of the ''Kapetania'' takes place on the last Sunday of the Carnival in Serifos Island. According to tradition, two teams, each one with a captain, stage a theatrical conflict outside the Monastery of the Taxiarches. The custom has been kept alive thanks to the efforts of the Serifos Women's Association.

Kastellorizon is the Easternmost island of Greece, very near the shore of Turkey and the city of Kas. I have spent two weeks during the Greek Orthodox Easter on the island and got to see the customs and meet very interesting local people.
