Crete Sights

Monastery of St. Peter and St. Paul

Fodor's Review

One of Heraklion's oldest monuments, dating from the 13th century, has been been rebuilt many times over the years and has done duty as a church, monastery, mosque, and cinema. After recent refurbishments, St. Peter's is now an exhibition hall and its 15th-century frescoes, the oldest in the city, have been beautifully restored.
