With respect to the ancient Macedonian tradition,we invite you to celebrate together for the third consecutive year the Gorpaias, a feast in honor of the goddess Athena Gorgopidos (who has a wild look). The Goddess acquired the surname "Gorgopis" after the "extermination" (incorporation) of Medusa / Gorgos in order to take possession of her great power, which she used to consolidate the new order in the fairer world she was about to rise.
The month of Gorpaios is dedicated to the goddess Athena, who is highly honored as a "Promoter", thereby highlighting Her martial appearance as "the Most High", that is, as Protector of the Macedonian cities and worshiping the Savior Gods as well as Dioscorus Gods. Her father, Most High Jupiter. Other Macedonian worship goddesses of Goddess are "Alkidimos", "Virgo", "Oriya".
The Feast will be held at the Temple of the Gods, in Paleokastro, Thessaloniki.
After the end of the mission, there will be a fruition in the countryside, where anyone can participate, making a bid (pastries, delicacies, wine, etc.).
Exact adress of the venue will be announced soon
