Well worth it is it when you’re in Heraklion . Centrally located and always open until 9 PM. Gorgeous stained glass and iconography.

A lovely peaceful building when we visited in the evening. A final resting place for the skull of St Titus, repatriated from Venice in 1966. The church spent a few centuries as a mosque during the ottoman occupation.

This was a nice church and a peaceful break from the busy streets outside. Free to enter, no shorts and conservative dress preferred.
