Saint Dionisios - Zante Vacation - Zakynthos Island Greece


St Dionysios Church is the most important on the island as it is dedicated to Saint Dionysios the patron saint of Zakynthos and his body is held in the Church in a silver casket. Founded in 1708 it was updated 50 years later and also renovated in the year 2000. It has a Venetian appearance and the bell tower is a direct copy of St Marco's in Venice.

The Church has a lovely location looking over the waterfront and is instantly recognisable when approaching the capital by boat. At night the lights that frame the bell tower create pretty reflections on the water in the harbour. A big festival is held in Zante town for three days, starting on St Dionysios's name day - the 24^th of August and the Saints body is paraded through the town centre followed by marching bands - it is a time of celebration and is popular with locals and tourists. Next to the church stands the monastery of St Dionysios and a museum explaining the history of the Church and Saint Dionysios.
