TOWNSMegalopolis CHURCH OF SAINT NICHOLAS The main church in Megalopolis is the Church of Saint Nicholas close to the central square. It is an attractive building featuring courses of red bricks which complement the stone and white painted columns and roof eaves. Saint Nicholas has his feast day on 6 December and it is not hard to imagine a public festival taking place here. In Greece every day of the year is dedicated to a saint or martyr. If you share a form of the saint's name, the saint's feast day is the day to celebrate. As it is the saint's festival, people visit a local church named after the saint to light a candle and make an offering.
