Churches in Corfu
The church of Saint Spyridon is located in the Old Town of Corfu, right behind Liston. It has the largest bell tower of all churches in the city and it is its red dome that visitors first see when they arrive by boat to Corfu. This saint is the protector of the island, as the myth says that he saved the town from a plague in the 17th century.
Built in the 13th century on the hill of Paleokastritsa, the monastery houses a small museum with Byzantine and post Byzantine icons. The museum gives great views to the sea and it is open to visitors.
Located in the quarter of Garitsa, this church was constructed in the 10th century and has a cross-in-square style. It is dedicated to Jason and Sosipater, the first Corfiot men who became Christians.
The Monastery of Pantokrator is located on top of the highest mountain of the island, on the northern side of Corfu. Access is done through a truck road but the incredible view rewards visitors.
Located in the suburb of Mandouki, the monastery was first built in 1743 and renovated after its destruction, in 1799, during the Franco Russian-Turk War. In this monastery, there is the grave of Ioannis Kapodistrias, the first governor of the independent Greek State.
The church of the Holy Trinity in Corfu was established in 1864 to serve the needs of the vast British populace on the island at that time. During the Second World War, it was damaged by German bombs and reopened in 1971. Today this Anglican church works normally and has a very active role in the local community. It frequently organizes craft groups, bible studies, meetings of the pilgrimages and public conversations.
