Church of Saint Spiridon, Corfu
(4.6/5 based on 340+ 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.

Prichestie about 8.30-9, then open up the relics of the Saint, the Russians sing the prayer service. In the evening, summertime service at 7 p.m., open power open at 17.00, often with 5 pm prior to the service, the priest may withdraw times 5. Note You can either leave, or simply ask the father about relics, he repeats the names. Slippers-filahto-give in church bench. Chapel closes at 21.00. Prior to this time, you can freely be placed next to the Saints. Put candles on the street. To submit a program you want to write at the top 40. If the repose upstairs put cross on health nothing but names. In the shop right in the Church also sell incense, oil and wax candles. You can ask the blessed flower with the relics of the Saint. All holidays on a different calendar from the Greeks on 13 days earlier. Therefore, 12 December svSpiridona celebration.
