Corfu in detail 13: an early 18th century commemorative plaque

  On Nikiforou Theotoki street, just across the street from "Panagia ton ksenon" church, there is an old building which bares a small plaque which dates back to 1729. 

  Looking more closely, somebody can read ΤΗΣ ΚΥΡΙΑΣ ΦΑΝΕΡΩΜΕΝΗΣ 1729 which implies that the building is property of the Panagias Faneromenis church, the proper name of Panagias ton ksenon. 

  That church is known of having a vast number of properties, among them the Pantokrator monastery at Pontikonissi (Mouse island).

When we stroll round Corfu Town we enjoy imagining you noticing some of the same things we notice too, but don't know enough about. Also when we are in England it's such a pleasure to take a virtual volta through your blog, Yianni. Thanks.
