Holy Monastery of Vlacherna

The Holy Monastery of Vlacherna is located right in front of Kanoni, south of the city of Corfu.

The Holy Monastery was built in the 17th century. The islet on which it is built is only 300 meters from the nearby coast. From here one can rent a boat, in order to visit the Pontikonisi opposite Vlacherna. Particularly impressive is the wood-carved iconostasis, as well as the hagiographies with which the church is decorated.

The monastery celebrates on July the 2nd.
