Agios Prokopios is a traditional village on a hill in central Corfu, at a height of 440 metres, just a few kms off Corfu town and the airport. It consists of approximately 400 permanent residents and a history of at least 700 years . The village was renamed lately as for centuries it was known as Psoraroi or Psorarou.
Agios Prokopios is a representative sample of the Corfiot architecture, met in the small neighbourhoods with the pure traditional features. A walk through these neighbourhoods will give you the chance to enjoy the local rural architecture.
The village is well known for its churches: Agios Vasilios, since 1511, Agia Triada and Agii Pantes, since 1745 and Agios Prokopios since the 16th century. This church was destroyed by fire early in the 19th century and was re-built in 1937.
The point of interest in Agios Prokopios is an olive tree at the south-eastern part of the hill in the village, which is probably the oldest and the biggest olive tree on the island with a 19 mtrs trunk.
