The church was part of a monastic school which became an intellectual centre on the island during the Cretan Renaissance. St. Catherine, houses a Museum of Religious Art.

This nice old Church is adjacent to the Saint Minas Cathedral; it looks like it was renovated but was still closed for some reason; therefore we were not able to see the Icons Museum. We believe the Icons must be marvelous.

The church and museum are closed for renovation. There is no sign anywhere about it so we went several times in vain until we at last were told that it was not open.

For the more erudite visitor, a sense of calm and history.
