Fodor's Review

The former Venetian church of St. Francis, surrounding a lovely garden in the shadow of the Venetian walls, displays artifacts from all over western Crete and the collection bears witness to the presence of Minoans, ancient Greeks, Romans, Venetians, and Ottomans. The painted Minoan clay coffins and elegant late Minoan pottery indicate that the region was as wealthy as the center of the island under the Minoans, though no palace has yet been located.
