Tucked away at the end of a small alley we happened to stumble upon this tiny square with its small church and beautiful statue of St Francis of Assisi. Such a quiet contrast only a few minutes away from the cacophony of the shopping area!

We had a little trouble finding this beautiful little church. We knew it was right across the street from the Cathedral but, didn't know you had go in between shops and through a little archway to get to it. There is a wonderful little courtyard in front that welcomes visitors. Once you go inside you will see the gorgeous altars and statues that are all around.There is no fee to enter so go in and spend a few moments. You will not regret taking the time to reflect on your day.

We were glad we took the time to visit this little church when we were in Chania. It was built in 1842 on the site of the old monastery of Cappuccinos monks who arrived in Chania in 1566. Although it was a little difficult to find, we were glad we took the time to locate it. It was a pretty little church; its quiet atmosphere and beautiful altar were the highlights during our brief visit.

Peaceful free and worth it if you like quiet spaces
This place is a refreshing contrast to the horrendous big church in the square, no opulence or Chrystal light fittings here

This small church, accessed via an alley between shops, was a gem. Though I am not a church goer I found the appointments and decor, the altar and the art, to be of interest. It takes only a brief visit to get the flavor of it, longer if you are so inclined.
