Religion is an important part of Greek life and culture. The Christian Orthodox faith is very strong. Corfu has hundreds of Churches and Monasteries, some of them built as far back as 1200 A.D..
During your stay in Corfu, do not miss out the opportunity to visit Greek Churches and Monasteries.
Over the centuries the fact, that many foreigners occupied the island and tried to suppress the orthodox belief of the local population, only made the belief stronger. That orthodox spirit and belief is reflected on the monasteries of the island. It’s really worth visiting the churches, chapels or monasteries of Corfu, to admire not only the architectural style but the wall paintings as well.
A full guided day trip to visit the most important and beautiful monasteries, not only in Corfu town but in small villages too.
