Church of Saint Spiridon, Corfu

(340+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
View the relics of a 1st-century saint at Church of Saint Spiridon, an unassuming Greek Orthodox church built in the 16th century. Though easily overlooked from the outside, the church boasts an elaborate interior, including a marble iconostasis, a double sarcophagus for the remains of St. Spyridon, and other Baroque elements. The relics were moved here in 1949 following the fall of the Byzantine Empire. Note the intricately painted ceilings with gold trim recounting the saint's life, as well as the incense burners hanging from the ceiling. Visitors are expected to be quiet, respectful, and dressed modestly.

  • A 17th-century church filled with striking paintings and vivid icons, as well as silver chandeliers suspended from its high ceiling. The dark wood furnishings and subdued lighting give a reverent feel...  more »
  • A charming and influential must visit place - wonderfully imposing and photogenic church and don't forget St Spiridon is the patron saint of both potters and Corfu for you info buffs  more »
  • It is a church steeped in history, and its main attraction is that it found the remains of Saint Spiridon, the patron saint of the island. If not go attentive passes unnoticed.
