This church is actually unlocked and visitors can tour it. It's a beautiful church located near the indoor market. The architecture resembles a church that you would see in Venice. The interior of the church is also worth visiting.

The 1821 square this church stands on has a sad story of the Turks hanging the clergy from the church at the old plane tree

Refurbishing a mosque, to a beautiful orthodox small church, is a good touch. Don't miss the small gorgeous catholic hidden inside the building on the opposite side of the main street.

This was one of the places we visited in Chania Town. Not being of Greek Orthodox faith, we found it interesting to see the many icons, statues, pictures, goblets, etc. displayed. The quiet atmosphere inside was appreciated as we sat in the wooden seats and...More

Sitting in the square, drinking coffee and with time to spare, we ventured into this Church. You are immediately struck by an atmosphere of reverence, peace and calm. The icons, statues,pictures, painted walls, old seats, golden goblets, silver candle holders and many more items show...More

Nothing really special to mention about, the average Orthodox church you can find in most Greek towns. What is a bit more special is that we had there a most welcome cool place during an unusually hot September day.

Being Greek Orthodox, its hard for me not to go by a church and not go in and light a candle and marvel at the iconography. This little church does not disappoint. Keep in mind though that when visiting a church (any church in Greece...More
