The Church of Saint Spyridon, patron saint of the Island, is situated in the heart of Corfu town just behind the Liston. The exterior of the church is typical of the Venetian architecture and its bell tower is the highest point in town. The top of the church is divided into 17 parts with golden frames painted by the artist, Panagiotis Doxaras, in 1727. The remains of Saint Spyridon are kept in a shrine inside the church and are carried around the town of Corfu four times a year to celebrate his miracles (Palm Sunday, Good Friday, August 11th, first Sunday of November). It is believed Saint Spyridon saved Corfu several times from dangers like plague, famine and in 1716 from the Ottoman attack. Therefore he is the most important and revered saint on the Island of Corfu and many men and boys are named after him.
