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.

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.

It's an old church in the center of Corfu town, easy to reach, where you can have a breath of warm air between its nice decorated walls.

The icons, the painted ceiling, the iconostasis, the reliques of Agios Spyridon. This is a place not to be missed. The shop of the church has, among other items on sale, icons and interesting books on the Corfù churches.

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
