Fikardou village actively participates in the “Handicrafts, Wine and Gastronomy Workshops” organized by the Ministry of Tourism. The village’s picturesque charm as well as the determination of the Community Council to take an active part in this project make it an ideal place to get to know, where one can experience the folk arts of a not so distant era.
The festival, which will run from June 19th until December 26th, includes a variety of interactive workshops in which the visitor has the choice of active participation or just observation.
The workshops in the community of Fikardou include:
