Church of Saint Spiridon, Corfu

4.6
#4 of 15 in Historic Sites in Corfu
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. Add Church of Saint Spiridon and other attractions to your Sinarades trip itinerary using our Sinarades trip planner .
