“Corfu's Saint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

This church in the centre of the old town is worth a visit. The coffin of the saint is paraded four times a year and rests in the church.
The ceiling is beautiful and the quiet inside is restful

“Liam61”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Different - very ornate. Would have preferred all the gold and silver to be sold and proceeds given to the poor!

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Only takes a few minutes as the church is situated in the centre of the Old Town and well worth popping in. A good landmark too if you get lost!

“A Beautiful Little Church - worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We were visiting Corfu with Greek friends, who took us to see this lovely little church. The view of the church from the top of hill, before you descend is gorgeous. This building takes you back in time and it is an icon of the island and therefore a must see for visitors!

“Wonderful church in a beautiful town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Is the Church with the tallest tower in the town. Consecrated to Corfu's patron whose relics remains are buried here. We like very much the fresco and icons and the tranquility.
