Can't say to much about this church as without sounding disrespectful they are very much all alike. Great artwork, lovely architecture, and amazing stained glass windows

The woodwork throughout the church is exceptional, and the rest of it is definitely worth stopping by.

The Agios Titos Church is a wonderful 19th century building located in a cobblestone square, right next to a paved road that leads to the Heraklion harbor. Great place to seat, relax and soak up some sun. Do not miss.

Agios Titos is a magnificent Byzantine-era church, among the most important monuments in all Crete. The basis for this importance is the fact it was built by Emperor Nicephorus Phokas, who liberated Crete from the Arabs and made it again part of the Byzantine Empire....More

The unusual shape and lay-out of St Titus church results from it being converted in the early 20th c. from a mosque. It reminds us that parts of what is now Greece were not liberated from the Ottoman Empire until the late 19th c. and...More

This was my favorite renaissance building in Heraklion, great architecture and a lovely square surrounding it, with a little fountain on the side. Don't miss it.

This is an Orthodox church in a former 19th-century mosque - hence its exotic exterior appearance. It is dedicated to Saint Titus, a disciple of Apostle Paul. Titus was also the first Bishop of Crete. It is one of the most important monuments in the...More

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.
