Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Collection Review

You'll get some insight into the Venetian occupation and the Christian centuries that preceded it at the Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Collection, housed in the charming 15th-century church of San Salvadore alongside the city walls just behind the Firka. Mosaics, icons, coins, and other artifacts bring to life Cretan civilization as it was after the Roman Empire colonized the island and Christianity took root as early as the 1st century.
