Corfu, Greece

Church Of St Spyridon

Church

The Greek Orthodox church of Saint Spyridon with its tall characteristic belfry is one of the major landmarks of the old town. It was built in the 1580s to hold the relic of Corfu’s Patron, Saint Spyridon, brought to Corfu by a monk in 1496, after the fall of Constantin. It is visited throughout the year by scores of thousands of worshipers from around the world. The interior is imposing, with the white marble iconostasis and the ornate ceiling covered with paintings of the Saint’s life and miracles, by the famous painter Panaghiotis Doxaras in the early 18th century.
