Église St-Spyridon

Church in Cargèse

Cargèse’s Greek community had been established in the village for 150 years by the time they erected this Greek Orthodox church, between 1868 and 1874. Inside, it holds a gilded iconostasis – the screen separating the congregation from the sanctuary – and some sumptuous murals, including a depiction of Satan seated on the Throne of the Beast surrounded by little pitchfork-toting devils.
