Virgin Mary of Tenedos

A Catholic Monastery of the early 18th century with important history. The church was built from 1678-1688, under the Latin Bishop Marco AntonioBarbarigo in the place of an older church and was inaugurated in 1749 by the Latin Bishop Antonio Nanni (1742-1765). It is an important, architecturally, church with a dome, double lateral chapels and a bell tower. It owes its name to the monks that had to abandon Tenedos, after its fall to the Ottomans in1657 and come to Corfu, bringing along the wonderful icon of the Virgin Mary.

At the central entrance there is a curved representation of the Venetian lion
and the inscription "Sub Ubra Alarum Tuatum Protege nos MDCCXII".  On either side there is the emblem   of the Donas family (right) and the emblem of the Franciscan Monks (left)

The Tenedos monastery housed for the first time the public library of Corfu (1800-1807), the fisrt Greek teacher's school (1805) supervised by Ioannis Kapodistrias and the first Greek printing house , where the " Thourios " of Rigas Ferreos was imprinted (an early singer and martyr of the Greek revolution).
