Taxiarchis Chapel: Corfu

One of the sights on the Corfu trail, the Taxiarchis Church, is a great place to view some of the history and culture of Corfu.

The ruined chapel is located in the north of the island and is the perfect attraction for holiday makers looking to take a break from the villa and enjoy some of the surroundings the area has to offer.

On the walls are frescoes and mythology states that the pictures were drawn in dust and blood and are very old.

A smaller new church nearby to the old chapel depicts the history of the monastery through autobiographies on the walls.

The chapel is just one of the many small but delightful areas that provide the perfect excuse for a day-time excursion in Corfu.
