This old church has been converted into a magnificent museum of Christian art after a seven-year closure. The results are nothing short of magnificent. The collection (mostly of Cretan icons) covers a long historical period. The critical and historical explanations are a demonstration of careful scholarship at its best. There is also ecclesiastical wood carving, silver, and garments.
This is a must see diamond ! Newly refurbished, this fantastic church built the 9th century is a jewel in the heart of the city. This used to be somehow a university during the cretan renaissance. Paintings from the cretan school, especially the fantastic, unique paintings of Damaskinos. Extra extra suggested !!! Do not miss it
This nice old Church is adjacent to the Saint Minas Cathedral; it looks like it was renovated but was still closed for some reason; therefore we were not able to see the Icons Museum.
We believe the Icons must be marvelous.
