“Festival of Saint Spyridon-great pageantry”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Attended the festival and amazed at how many people lined the streets to witness the procession accompanied by the local brass band and the priests to display the golden casket housing the sacred relics of Saint Spyridon, as they marched through the town and around the church. Church packed so only got a glimpse of the interior!

“Bizarre”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

They keep the remains of Saint Spyridon on display year round. The locals will kiss the coffin as they proceed by. It is an old church right in the middle of old Corfu Town.

“Just Beautiful”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Beautiful little Church done in the Byzantine style. It is surrounded by shops selling icons and religious art. It was one of the highlights of our trip.
