Agios Prokopios is a perfect example of traditional Corfiot architecture at its most beautiful, where the small local neighbourhoods meet with the typically traditional features of architecture of the period. A brief stroll through the local neighbourhoods gives you the chance to view aspects of the local architecture of this period in a traditionally Corfiot setting.
The village is well known for its churches: Agios Vasilios, since 1511, Agia Triada and Agia 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 ancient withered olive tree located on the south-eastern side of the village, it is known to be probably the oldest and the biggest olive tree on the island with a 19-metre trunk.
The Village organises a summer festival on 8th July each year where Grilled Meat and Drinks are served accompanied by music and local dancing from one of the Corfiot traditional bands of the area.
