This naval battle, the largest ever seen by mankind to that day , was the first one to have been won by the Christian forces after 8 marge-scale naval battles, which they had lost . That victory was a boost to the morale of the Christian forces and helped them keep control over the Mediterranean and especially of the Western Mediterranean (they had lost control over the Eastern Mediterranean just two months before that, with the loss of Cyprus to the Turks).
Among the human losses of the battle were Juan de Córdova, Alfonso de Cárdena, Juan Ponce de León, Fabiano Graziani, Colonna etc.
After the devastation of the church during the Nazi bombardments on 14/9/ 1943 , the bones were transferred to the Catholic Cemetery of Corfu, at the Cappucini region.
Also Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra) spent some time in this church.
Today, all that is left of the church is only the belltower and part of the altar.
