43rd place (joint)
Two Orthodox priests carry an icon of the Virgin and Child during a procession at a festival at the Monastery of Agios Yerasimos in Kefalonia. It is the feast day of Agios Yerasimos who is the patron saint of Kefalonia. The priests are at the head of the religious element of the procession and people can be seen behind laying on the floor to touch the relic of the saint as it is carried over their bodies. The festival takes place each year on 15/16 August.
