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.

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.

Away from the glare of the sun, the dark peaceful interior is wrapped in dark wood carving, classic religious imagery and dripped in extravagant silver. The casket containing the relics a particular focus. A must see.

Many people who were visiting while we were there were very emotional being in this church. We are not orthodox but enjoyed seeing the architecture. St. Spiridon's remains are in a casket in the church.

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
