This is one of the largest and more interesting of the churches and there was a service underway when visited so there was limited opportunity to see inside but it was impressive outside and through the people involved it looked impressive inside as well.

THe church itself is well visible in Corfu since its tower is high and you cannot miss it. Once you enter the church you will find it very orthodox in mood. Beautiful icons, great iconostas, candles and praying people. Pictures are not allowed in the...More
