It is a very small church so it will only take a few minutes to visit. Incredibly ornate inside and was a busy attraction.

The age and details are impressive as I'd the relatively small size. It looks very intense inside but beautiful. Remember it's a church and be respectful.

Another beautiful Church in Chania. We didn't know about this one either. It's beautiful inside. There are some seats available outside too and lots of places for snacks nearby for ice creams, etc. The statue nearby is also pretty cool of a typical Greek Priest.

On the main tourist street (Halidon) in the center of the old city, this is a must visit. Beautiful building inside/outside. The NOTRE DAMME of Chania !

Surprisingly small 'cathedral'. Very pretty inside and looks good from outside, but not a lot to it in total
