Description

Around Corfu, from North to South, there is always a joyful ringing of all churches’ bells, inviting believers to pray with a focus of their heart. Corfu, an island with rich religious traditions, has so many devout Christians who turn to their faith every day.

In the countryside of Corfu, where life is simpler and authentic, people maintain local traditions, customs and mostly religious traditions relating to great devotion to God. The existence of so many churches and Orthodox monasteries in every village are proof that Corfiot’s do have very strong religious and spiritual feelings. It is notable that there are many monks and nuns residing nowadays at monasteries of Corfu, having devoted their life to religion.

Join this religious tour in the villages of Corfu with us and let us introduce you to the history, traditions and, more specifically, folklore traditions of each place as well as the everyday life of people, being associated with their devotion to God and religious traditions passed down through their ancestors.

During our tour we will meet elderly monks, who have lived at monasteries during their whole life. They will tell us about this lifetime experience, the ascetic life, their everyday habits, this challenging way of life, but also about the peace of mind offered through prayers, devotion to God and fast.

We will be guided through the narrow cells of monks and their low household goods, while we will admire rare icons and old, unique paintings depicting saints, decorative altarpieces, and magnificent bell towers as well as a variety of products cultivated with great effort.

In those villages, set amidst the green and peaceful environment of Corfu, far away from contemporary lifestyle, extremely old monasteries stand proudly, reminding us of an alternative way of life and a different attitude towards life.  According to founding documents, these monasteries were built a lot of centuries ago, inviting us to be guided through the life of monks, an ascetic life, according to which peace of mind comes with great belief and devotion to God.

Let’s discover the monasteries of Corfu together, learn about life there and mainly the life of an ascetic, having found the meaning of life, happiness and peace within God’s plans and prayers.

It shall be a special day, a day close to people that have devoted themselves to God, a great opportunity of soul-searching, devotion, and peace of mind.
