This church is named for the patron saint of Corfu, St. Spyridon, who is said to have saved the island on more than one occasion. In fact, a large segment of the male population in Corfu is named "Spyros" in his honor. His remains are housed in a crypt inside the church. The structure dates back to the 1580s, and still functions as a Greek Orthodox Church.
Recent visitors said they were more impressed with the church's interior than its exterior, and recommend stopping by to snap a few photos of the church's red domed bell tower – the highest point in Corfu Town.
The church sits northwest of the Old Fortress in Corfu's Old Town. Admission is free, but visits during church services are discouraged.
