Island of Corfu is one of the most spiritual pilgrimage destinations in Greece
The aristocratic and beautiful Corfu, the northernmost of the Ionian islands, is one of the most spiritual pilgrimage destinations in Greece. In the historic town center, which has been declared as World Heritage monument, stands the holy church of St. Spyridon the Wonderworker.
