An oasis of calm

Just a few steps away from the tourist trap is this beautiful church where it was relaxing and enjoyable just to sit and contemplate. Everything was beautifully maintained.

The Titos Church is located in the heart of Heraklion center near the famous shopping street. The building looks very nice and has a dominant place on the beautifull plakas of downtown. In this area you find very good restaurants too.

On 25 August Street-formerly used as Byzantine church,then a Turkish mosque, and finally restored in 1925 as Greek Orthodox Church. The interior is lovely!

Nice church both inside and out. I had a tour guide so it was interesting to hear about the paintings/history of religion too. Really lovely building too. Benches outside to sit and relax, and lots of cafes/restaurants/shops around.

This church has quite a history, having been a Byzantine temple, a Catholic Church and a mosque in its previous life. The exterior is fairly plain and boxy but has a kind of elegance and balance.

If you are on a cruise ship and decide to stroll around the city, maybe do a little shopping, then you will probably happen along to see St. Titus Church in the busy shopping area. From the outside, it does not appear to be an over abundantly fancy structure. Do go inside and be surprised at the contrast from the... More

St. Titus was the founder of Christanity in largely Orthodox Greece. Indiscreet, but pretty place of worship in the center of Hrraklion is worth a short visit while you're touring the city...many tavernas nearby to enjoy a snack or coffee.
