“Orthodox church in ceter of heraklion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2014

The old Byzantine church of Saint Titus, the Venetians made a Catholic church then the Turks converted it into a mosque altering its structure. Destroyed by an earthquake in the mid-nineteenth century was rebuilt. It contains the relics of the saint in a chapel inside and worth a short visit.

“15 minute stopover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2014

This lovely church is in city center and well worth a fifteen minute stopover. Wood work is excellent and some of the Icons of excellent quality. Did this building start its life as a mosque?

“Unique architecture in the heart of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2014

Walking around the city center this unique church will attract your eyes. A Byzantine Emperor offer this great Dome to Cretan people and to first Christian Bishop of Crete Saint Titus. Its not a byzantine typical church but great combination of different techniques. Do not miss it

“Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2014

This is one of two big churches, cituated in the heart of old city. Bright side of it - it is beautiful and old (you can see old peaces under the glass). Dark side - there is really nothing interesting, but the fact, that it is still operational.
