Snorkeling and Boat Tour in Crete

45 reviews
Snorkeling is very relaxing and at the same time a very exciting activity which is suitable for all ages. Join us in a daily (morning or afternoon) guided “snorkeling” trip, take the mask, fins, snorkel and shorty wet suit from us, board on our 10 meters shady rib boat and take the chance to relax watching the marine life of our island. <br><br>We visit always two different spots with a lot of marine life, such as caves and an open water area always depends on the weather conditions

Fairly unexceptional RC church with late 19th/early 20th century paintings. Two items of note: the Byzantine-style and apparently much older icon of Mary, the mother of Jesus, on the right hand wall towards the altar and a modern image of Jesus below the pulpit.

Having read the reviews, I had no difficulty finding the alley that led to the Roman Catholic Cathedral. From the outside it doesn't look like a church, though the Belfry is a clue. The interior is very elegant, and is a complete contrast to all the Greek Orthodox churches I visited in Crete. The atmosphere was serene. Outside there is a statue of St Francis set in a small garden among palm trees and flowering shrubs.

Take time to visit this Catholic Church which can be overlooked in favor of the splendid Greek Othrodox Church which dominates the plaza.

Tucked away at the end of a small alley we happened to stumble upon this tiny square with its small church and beautiful statue of St Francis of Assisi. Such a quiet contrast only a few minutes away from the cacophony of the shopping area!

We had a little trouble finding this beautiful little church. We knew it was right across the street from the Cathedral but, didn't know you had go in between shops and through a little archway to get to it. There is a wonderful little courtyard in front that welcomes visitors. Once you go inside you will see the gorgeous altars and statues that are all around.There is no fee to enter so go in and spend a few moments. You will not regret taking the time to reflect on your day.
