The Basilika of St. Mark is located in the heart of the city of Heraklion and it is home to various art exhibitions and at times musical concerts. Lovely building, a little too small for an art gallery but it is a Venetian building (Saint Mark is the patron saint of Venice), was in part ruined afterwards by the Ottomans,...
A lovely building which houses regular major free exhibitions, We saw an amazing collection of photos from the observatory at Skinakas. One a year or so ago there was a photographic history of recent Crete
We stopped in for a couple of minutes, but the art exhibit was a poor fit for this space. Everything in the structure of a religious nature is gone, with the best feature being a wooden ceiling. Not worth the time if you have other things you want to see.
