“don't miss it when visiting Corfu town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

wonderful experience! you can't understand the meaning or the importance of this church if you are not an orthodox.
we were there on the 11th of August. The procession was impressive.

“Don't forget to look up....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Poor citizens of Corfu trying to worship whilst we tourist gawk away. Don't forget to take time to look up at the ceiling - the artwork is amazing. If you're in Corfu or heading that way try to include Palm Sunday, Holy Saturday and August 11th when St. Spyiidon's relics are carried around the city.

“Very busy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

A beautiful church but I preferred a lot of the smaller, quieter monastries and churches we visited. You had to queue to kiss the icon. It was just too busy for me to feel anything spiritual.

“Ornate and busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

This Church is so popular as an attraction that you have to feel sorry for the locals trying to use it. However it is worth seeing as is joining the queue to pay homage to the relic of the Saint. The Orthodox decorations are rich and ornate.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Tiny church but worth visiting, amazing silver casket to see with fresco's all around. Make sure that you take something to cover your knees and shoulders otherwise you will be wearing something that resembles a tablecloth!
