Owned by a fraternity (noble families) with a large land property. One of the richest churches in town. The typical form of the Corfiot Church with the peripheral exonarthex is excellently preserved. Many nobles were buried there, as indicated by the coats of arms decorating the grave stones. Access to the entrance, which is situated towards the north coastal road (Mouragia) is gained through broad stairs ascending between the facades of the adjacent dwellings. The pierced belfry stands at the southern side of the church. Precious icons decorate the interior (17th c.), painted by the acknowledged religious painters of that time, Em. Tzane Bountalis, Stefanos Tsagkarolas and E. Lombardos. The ourania is decorated with wainscots and gold-plated ornaments. Today it houses the Byzantine Museum.
