Churches in Chania

As with the rest of Crete, the number of churches in the Prefecture of Chania is significant, resulting in their impossibility to be fully recorded. If you want to visit a small church, the key to the door is often kept by some inhabitant in the nearest settlement.

Indicatively, in the city of Chania you can visit the Cathedral of Chania, the Church of the Trimartiris and the Church of the Isodion. In the Municipality of Kissamos the churches of St. Polikarpos and St. Nicholas. The country church of St. Irinis in Gramvousa. In the settlement of Polirinias there is a small church of The Assumption of the Virgin Mary. At the citadel of ancient Polirinias there is a temple of Diktynis Artemidos (4th century B.C.) a site on which the church of St. Pateron was built (around 1894).

In the Municipality of Mithymnis there are the churches of St. Panteleimona, St. George, St. Paraskevi and St. Triadas. In the Municipality of Pelekanos there are the churches of St. John, Michael Archangel and St. Paraskevis in the area of Sarakinas. Near the fortress of Fragokastelo, towards the sea side, there are in ruins the churches of St. Charalambous as well as the church of St. Nikita (1371), where traces of Old Christian Basilica are saved.
