Santa Maura’s church is located in Macherado, about 10 km from the town of Zakynthos. It is one of the most famous churches in the island, because there is kept the image of Santa Maura. According to rumors the old icon was found by a shepherd where he was hanging it on a tree. The shepherd was carrying the image every morning to the village and every night the image was returning back. In that place was built the church later. The famous picture found in Egypt where Santa Maura was living and after some years came in Zakynthos. Also that is going to excite you is: the old paintings of great artists, which are very interesting to see. The church celebrates on May 3 in Macherado with a big traditional feast.
