Beautiful worth the walk
Sep. 2021
Lovely little church still used for frequent services. We walked around from Gouvia not the most pleasant as have to walk along main road.

The views are stunning, very little around the area so take drinks.

Very picturesque but closed
Sep. 2021 • Couples
The chapel was originally built in 1713 as a private family Church, it changed hands a number of times throughout the years.

At some stage it was abandoned and eventually fell to ruins. In 1996 it was renovated using mostly the original materials ensuring the authentic nature of the Church.

Every time we drove from our accommodation, in Barbati, into Corfu Town we would see the Church on the island in the Bay and earmarked it as a place to visit.

Thursday 2nd September, our final day of the holiday with the car and we paid a visit here. We took the turing by Coffee Me, coffee shop, in Kommeno and followed the road along the Bay to the Church.

As we walked out along the jetty to the Island,  the entrance gate to the Island was bolted closed so we were disappointingly unable to visit the Church.

We did take the opportunity to enjoy the panoramic views of Kommeno Bay, across to Gouvia’s Marina and then along to the Old Town of Corfu and Vido Island.

Despite endless searches was unable to find any information about opening times.

The Church celebrates the Feast of Candlemas (Presentation of Jesus at the Temple) on the 2nd February.

It is also a very popular place to celebrate wedding in Corfu.

Small but Perfect

Church is picturesque and has a typical Greek church interior. It does not take long to see everything and we enjoyed our walk from Gouvia.

Well worth a quick visit if you are nearby

With the sun out, this was a lovely place for a quick visit, with beautiful views. The church inside is nice, and you can light candles.

Quiet and Picturesque

Lovely church in a quiet and picturesque setting and well worth the walk from Gouvia. The views of the Bay from here were amazing and enjoyed just sitting outside enjoying the views.

Would visit again.

Beautiful church - see if you are in the area
Sep. 2019
We stopped at this church as part of a guided island jeep tour. It is in a lovely location and the inside is small, but beautiful. I enjoyed the stop, but I would not encourage a special trip to see. It's a 10-15 min stop, see.

An easy walk from Gouvia village of about 2km. Very pretty views across the bay. Tiny, 16th century church.

If you are in the Gouvia, Dassia area dont miss this little gem. Follow the sugn for Kommeno off the main Dassia Road and follow round. Its a peaceful little haven looking over to Gouvia. Nice to take a picnic and a bottle if wine and chill.
