A lecture about the 1716 siege of Corfu (in greek)

   Professor George Zoumpos gave recently a lecture at the palace's gardens about the great siege of Corfu which took place in 1716. This important battle is commemorated every August the 11th with the litany of St. Spyridon who, according to the local religious beliefs, saved the island from the ottoman turks.
  During this one hour-long lecture, mr. Zoumpos is giving us a detailed discussion about the siege after many years of personal research.
