Spyridon Monastery is a Greek Orthodox Center of Jabsha St., near the Northern Wall St. Spyridon was a Cypriot bishop in the 4th century AD, whose embalmed corpse traveled to Constantinople and in the 15th century was returned to the island of Corfu. According to residents of Corfu, Spyridon saved the island four times: once from the Turks, once from hunger and twice from disease. Many believers come to the Corfu church to see the complete body displayed to the public for a few minutes each day and once a year his hearse is paraded on the island.
