Skip the Line: Knossos Palace and Archaeological Site Entrance Ticket

31 reviews
Nobody wants to waste vacation time waiting outside an attraction, especially in high temperatures. With this priority-access ticket to the Knossos archaeological site, you can breeze past ticket-purchase lines to explore what was the birthplace of Minoan civilization and according to myth, the seat of King Minos. Prebook your skip-the-line ticket, travel independently to the site, and roam the partially restored relics of Minos’ palace and courtyards independently.

Whilst walking around the old town of Heraklion, we discovered this beautiful church by "mistake", and I am really glad for that "mistake" :-). I am not at all an expert on greek orthodox churches, but I really enjoyed this church - it felt really right, on all terms. The coloroured glass windows are beautiful, the icons also, and its not to hectic and too golden, as I sometimes feel in greek orthodox churches. We enjoyed lighting some candles for my late dad.

A nice litte church, not very impressive or architecturally special, but with a nice interior, some nice paintings and a couple of surprising views. If you are there anyway just make the short detour and visit.

It was only a quick visit to the city so we didn’t have time to explore much. This wonderful church though dominated the square where we had dinner and made for a lovely backdrop. It is right by the very popular Lion Square and the structure is beautiful. The history of this town is amazing and this church has seen it all. We didn’t have time to go inside but it dominates the square and proudly has the Greek flag flying up high.

An orthodox church in the tourist area, with a great facade. One can enter, and it has some interesting modern stained glass windows, as well as the typical iconostases. It also has a narthex where candles are burning and one can buy trinkets as well as candles.

Friday 28th August and we visited this Church situated in Agiou Titou Square, off 25 is Avgoustou, in the centre of Heraklion . A former 19th century Mosque, which explained why it did not look like a traditional Greek Church. It has a number of arched windows and entrance door with a round window above that. The Chuch is topped with a white/silvery dome with a small cross above it. From the outside the dome it appears to be small as it is concealed by the parapet of the Church. Inside is a different story, it is very big, with a gallery with arched coloured glass windows all around it. A very ornate carved chandelier, suspended  from the domed ceiling, is one of the main features of the Church. A wooden screen (reredos), towards the rear of the Church is adorned with religious images. Even the interior is rather different from other Greek Churches, not as ornate or colourful. Definitely worth a visit.
