The Byzantine Church of the Apostolic Saints Iason and Sosipater
The Church of SS Iason and Sosipater is the most esteemed monument of the Byzantine period in Corfu. The saints Iason and Sosipater were apostolic disciples of St Paul who introduced Christianity to Corfu. The church was built more than a thousand years ago at Palaeopolis of Corfu in the double-columned, cross-shaped, inscribed style. Little has survived from the murals inside it. The graves of the two apostles and pieces of their relics repose in the church.
