The Island of Corfu is home to some twenty Greek Orthodox Monasteries. Havens for monastic silence and a life dedicated to God. Today it is possible to visit most of these. Many are in the northern part of the island with a few more in central Corfu and some in Corfu Town.
Their beauty and endurance have made Corfu an attractive destination for religious tourism. Whether alone or as part of a group it is possible to visit or even stay at some of these monasteries. Some are rich in history, others rich in beauty and even in ecclesiastical artistic talent that travels far and wide.
