Catholic Church of Ayios Iakovos

Catholic Church of Ayios Iakovos Review

Built in 1588 and consecrated 50 years later, this elegant cathedral was erected to provide a grand place of worship for Corfu town's Catholic occupiers. If you use the Italian name, San Giacomo, locals will know it. When it was bombed by the Nazis in 1943, the cathedral's original neoclassic facade of pediments, friezes, and columns was practically destroyed; only the bell tower remained intact. It's now been restored.
