Ekklisia Spiliotissas ke Agios Vlassis

610_7698-s_wThis is another church in the Old town of Corfu town. I guess, this one is special. It’s decorated very rich with gold and silver. It also has some big byzantine icons.

This church was built in 1577 and thus has some renaissance elements in its architecture. Before, the temple Agios Vasilios for the virgin Spilaiotissa stood in this place. Because of the destruction of the temple, the images were moved to this new church.

In the back of the church you can find the silver coffin with the relic bones of St. Theodora.

Enjoy!
