Saint Spyridon Church , the miraculous and Saint of Corfu The history and the tradition of our local Church from 1456 is imminently connected with Saint Spyridon. The arrival of his holy relic from Istanbul, his staying in Corfu, the built of his church along with the establishment of five big feasts based on Him led the christians to believe that Corfu cannot exist without Him. But even our local Church owes Him a lot. Not only did He protect it during the hard times of the Venetian Occupation, but also from other foreign occupations. French, Russians, English, Italians and Germans have passed over our island, staying for different lapses of time.

This isn’t a big church and lots non descriptive from the outside. The vault of the Saint is beautiful. The silver casket he was in was spectacular. People were lined up to get in simply to kiss his casket. The old wooden pews were lovely.

You cannot miss a visit to this beautiful church because it is right along the busy tourist path through the shopping area. What I always enjoy is when they offer a little opportunity to buy something there to remind you of your visit. Here I...More

This place makes me wish I understood more about the Orthodox religion. It is, nonetheless, a welcome opportunity to break away from the cruise ship hordes and give thanks for the opportunities we have to share in other people's experiences.

This is a really pretty church in the heart of Corfu Old Town. It stands out in the skyline once you are in the old quarter and well worth a visit. You do not have to be religious to enjoy the splendour of this place....More

If you ever visit Corfu, you are going to hear stories about Saint Spiridon, the one who saved this island from horrible diseases and misfortune. Its a good place to visit if you are religious but also wanna hear some extra stuff about Corfu.

You can only walk there actually the church is located to the old town so there are no roads only around the old city. You can take a bus possible- if there is - to Liston and from there is only 3 min walking distance
