Church
“This church is named after Corfu's patron saint, St. Spyridon. Built in 1589, its red-domed bell-tower dominates the skyline from afar. Inside, in a low-lit side chapel decorated with moody frescoes, note a silver sarcophagus adorned with precious stones, enclosing the remains of St. Spyridon. A shepherd from Cyprus, Spyridon lived in the second century AD, and before he died, he became a bishop and began performing miracles. Since his remains are in Corfu, locals believe that his miraculous intervention saved their island from catastrophe on several occasions. ”

“Possibly one of the most iconic sites of Corfu, Vlacherna Monastery juts out into the sea on its very own island. Nowadays, the monastery is reached by a small track over the water, which makes for a lovely place to visit. The monastery is open all year round and welcomes all visitors.”

“ You reach another small square where you go straight on and then follow signs to the Venetian Well, up steps on the left. The well and eponymous restaurant are located in the picturesque Kremasti Square, so called because of the icon of the Virgin which used to hang (kremasti) on the wall of the church. The well head, carved with stylized flowers and other symbols, was constructed by Antonis Kokkini in 1699 as a gift to the community. Until the 1840s when the British brought running water to the Town, supplies came from water sellers who hauled it from the nearby river, and from underground cisterns. Most of the Town's squares were built specially to collect rainwater and store it underground, and well heads such as this one gave the local people access to the supplies.”
