The Antivouniotissa
Monument-Church-Museum

The church, dedicated to the Holy Virgin “Our Lady of Antivouniotissa” (Kyra Antivouniotissa) and already functioning in the 15th century, is one of the most characteristic ecclesiastical monuments in Corfu city. It is the oldest, most complete, and best preserved example of the “Heptanesian Basilica” style. After restoration works on the monument in 1984, 1994, 1999-2000, and the completion of its museological program, Antivouniotissa now has on permanent display a large and important collection of movable icons and heirlooms. The collection includes significant works by both well known and anonymous artists, dating from the 15th to the 20th century, which fully represent six centuries of artistic religious expression and creation in Corfu and the Ionian Islands.

Antivouniotissa was a private church. In 1979, the Corfiot owner families of Mylonopoulos, Rizikaris and Skarpa donated the Avtivouniotissa complex with its rich movable fittings (icons, heirlooms and others) on the condition that it also function as a museum. The church-museum was first inaugurated in 1984 by the late Melina Mercouri, who at the time was the Greek Minister of Culture. Antivouniotissa never lost its character as a place of worship, and today holds services twice a year on religious holidays connected with the Virgin Mary: December 26, and August 23. It is the only such church-museum in Greece, combining in a most harmonious way these two functions within the same monument.
