Fairly modern interior
Sep 2020
One of the few churches that are open for visits on Crete, so in that sense very worthwhile to enter. It is an Greek-orthodox church, but the decorations is not as all encompassing as in many other orthodox churches. The mural paintings are also quite recent.

So beautiful temple

So beautiful temple and the interior, but especially the exterior. In a very good point, a large square of town.

Beautiful and so historic.

My son and I had attended a Greek wedding there in 2005 and returned in Oct 2019 to see old friends. Returning to this Cathedral brought back fond memories and seeing the beauty and actualizing the historical value allowed for great thoughts.

Magnificent place of worship
Oct 2019
This is a truly excellent cathedral in the true Greek Orthodox style, full of rich silver and highly decorated icons. Yet there is a peace for a quiet prayer. A fine fresco dominates.

Beautiful church

Right in the middle of Chania, this church is beautiful, inside & out. It’s worth a visit and, once inside, is very calming and peacefully

Intimate and Personal
Oct 2019 • Couples
This church is not exactly what the name brings to mind. It’s not grand and overwhelming. Rather, it’s small and personal. It draws you into the life of the community. You could spend much of the day examining the carvings and icons, or you can just gaze up to the ceiling and be absorbed by the clear blue color and light. We were very glad that we stopped to spend time in this center of Greek Orthodox life in Chania.

Lovely Greek Orthodox Church!
Oct 2019 • Couples
Dominating this small square, this is a classic basilica with an elegant sanctuary. Bathed in blue, the sanctuary is small and more intimate than some larger churches. Instead of pews or folding chairs for the congregation, there are dark wooded side chairs.

Very quick visit
Aug 2019
I visited the Cathedral of Eisodion tis Theotoku in August 2019 during my walking tour of Chania. I also believe it is called the Cathedral of the Presentation of the Virgin Mary but I could be wrong. It is very nice to look at from the outside. I also went inside. It was very rich and full of icons and paintings.

Small for a cathedral
Sep 2019
A nice little cathedral which won’t take very long to look around. We visited as my wife is religious and likes to visit and light candles to those we have lost, I’m an admirer of architecture and ambiance
