We found the exhibit open one evening and had a delightful time browsing the art. They took the Bee Pendant, the Myth of Zeus, Minoan Godess statues, and the Linear A script and expand upon these.

Saint Mark's (Agios Markos in Greek) Basilica is meant to make us think of Saint Mark in Venice. Logical! Venice ruled Crete for four long centuries (1205-1669) and lost it to the Ottoman Turks in after 25 years of siege, the longest city siege in...More

I'm one of Heraklion residents who visit this site more than 2 times per month. It is one of the city’s “jewels”, but also hosts really interesting exhibitions.

It is a very good sample of a basilica built at the time of Venition occupation in Crete. It often hosts very good art exhibitions. It is hard to miss as it is located at the very center of the town.

If you visit Heraklion do not miss this impossing outside beautiful inside. We lit some candles for our moms inside, words won't prepare you for the colour and beauty inside.
