Church of Virgin Mary Mandrakina by Tom Gomez

Church of Virgin Mary Mandrakina by 

The Church of the Virgin Mary (Panagia) Mandrakina, which is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and to Saint Panteleimon, is located North of the municipal Park (Spianada) at the shore between the Palaia Anaktora and the Old Fortress (Palaio Frourio).

Built in the 18th century, the church was badly damaged during the German bombing of WWII but restored about five years later.

Corfu is the most northerly of the Grecian Ionian Islands. It is a green and beautiful place where the pace of life is not too taxing.

The Old Town of Corfu is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
