This cathedral is gorgeous inside and out, so be sure to pop in toappreciate the byzantine style art that covers the walls and decorates the domes.

We could not manage to be on time to go inside the Church. However, it was beautiful from outside, late in the evening. The structure is in the heartof Heraklion town, in the Central area.

Beautiful cathedral situated in a lovely square away from the crowds and noise of Heraklion - recommend a visit near sunset when huge flock of sparrows come in to roost in the trees - there are a couple of tavernas to sit and relax.

The cathedral is just massive. It's an amazing structure, makes everything around it look so small. Looking inside, its windows are decorated with colored glass and its walls & ceiling are all covered with paintings. It is worth a visit, both, during daytime and nighttime. Even if you don't go inside, just sitting outside the church for a while and observing it. There are several taverns around it.
