Agioi Douloi

The village Agioi Douloi is a traditional, small village of the Corfiot countryside with Venetian houses and picturesque alleys. The village was named this way because during the Byzantine era its inhabitants were slaves who cultivated the areas around the church so they were called agiodoulites (meaning slaves who work for the church).

Today, in the center of the village, dominates an impressive mansion of the 18th century. It is the mansion of the Laskaris family built by local constructors led by the Italian architect Enrico Soresini. In Agioi Douloi you can also visit the Monastery of Agios Dimitrios  which is constructed in the traditional Corfiot way of building churches. On the road, which leads to Nymfes, you will also find the Hermitage of Pantokratoras Kamarela , a female monastery which was named after the neighboring spring «Kamarela».
