The Museum of Icons & Heirlooms

The Museum of the Holy Archbishopric of Crete is housed in the Church of Agia Aikaterini (Saint Catherine), which (other than its elegant 17th century entrance-way) dates back to the 15th century.

During Venetian rule it served as a monastery chapel, and was built as a dependency of the Monastery of St. Catherine at Sinai.
