Church of Saint Spiridon, Corfu
(4.6/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is located in the middle of the old town of Corfu church dedicated to the patron saint of the island, Saint Spiridon. A small featured church with beautiful icons and Wandmalereien.Wir had the luck on the day on which the island celebrates the Saints to be here, and could actually follow also a very beautiful liturgy and the procession of the relic of the Saint.

  • Spirydo is the patron saint of the island of Corfu, so this church is the most important on the island, still come to the crowds. The Tower of the Church is completed the Red Dome, so the Church is visible from almost anywhere in the city, the hotel is not far from the street Liston and leads to him one of the narrow streets
