This is noteworthy by its connection to the New Testament times via history. The church itself is not old but a remnant of the Turkish occupation. But it is of interest. It is not a classically Greek Orthodox church but has unique interest because of...More

A completely rebuilt church after the Ottoman mosque now being used as an Orthodox church but completely unorthodox from an arquitectural point of view due to this special history. The church is nice but the surroundings are nicer (a square and places to relax)

A mosque converted into an Orthodox church. Nice, but nothing. A nice cube in the center of Heraklion. The most interesting thing is the iconostats: imposing. For the rest it is very modern in furnishings and decorations.

Skull of St Titus, disciple of Apostle Paul and 1st bishop of Crete, is kept in a silver reliquary. Quite moving witnessing elder Greeks' devotion. Extraordinary wood carvings to decor.

I confirm the above answer. I personally took photos inside Agios Titos Church, and most probably you can use Video recording too. The Church can easily accommodate over 200 people.
