A must if visiting Corfu town

We visited this church and we're lucky enough to be able to queue and view the Saint. The queue was kept moving and rushed, but was good to see.

The beautiful church of St. Spiridon is where the remains of the Island's Patron Saint lie in a silver casket. The church is very ornately decorated in the style of Greek Orthodox churches. The "cantors" (male singers) are very good and if you attend an evening service in winter (about 1730) you will be able to fully appreciate their talent... More

Amazing Church where you can view St Spiridon's body, If you want to view the body you have to make sure you find out the timetable for viewing as casket is not always opened, but the church is always open to view the closed casket and the inside of the church.There are always staff members in the church to help....

A quietly spectacular place of worship ! Sitting under its hand painted dome, celebrating the miracles of St Spyridon, is a gift to oneself. Venetian incense burners, intricate in silver and gold, dominate the expanse of its space. It is a beautiful sanctuary which cradles the relics of Saint Spyridon. To understand Corfu is to visit Saint Spyridon Church. Happy... More

I think that everyone should visit such a holy place. It really makes you hold your breath!!! You can understand the importance and respect of Orthodox Religion and the real effect to the common people. It is an interesting and inspiring place to visit while in Corfu you should not miss it.

In the middle of Corfu Town steeped in history. Saint Spiridon's coffin is paraded around the town every year and Saint Spiridon is the patron saint of Corfu. The church has a serene atmosphere and the coffin is placed near the front of the church to the right hand side. If you visit Corfu Town this must be a must... More

Everywhere that we travel, I make it a mission to experience a local church to light a candle for my deceased Mum and to give thanks for my wonderful family. The chuch of St. Spyridon is in the Old Town, it is small but so beautiful and has great meaning historically to the Corfiot people. On the day that we... More
