GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH OF SAINT SPYRIDON

The Greek Orthodox church of Saint Spyridon is located in the town center of Corfu and is one of the landmarks of the island of Corfu, since many visitors all around the world visit Corfu in order to worship the relics of Saint Spyridon. This church was built in the 1580s and it is supposed that, after the fall of the Byzantine Empire, the relics of St. Spyridon and St. Theodora Augusta were brought to Corfu from Constantinople by a Greek monk, Georgios Kalochairetis, who was a well-off person. The ceiling of the church is divided into segments, depicting scenes from St. Spyridon’s life and miracles. The original painter of the church ceiling was Panagiotis Doxaras, who created the works in 1727.
