Church of the Saints Peter and Paul

The church of the Saints Peter and Paul is located on the coastal road, east of the Historical Museum of Heraklion, among ruins of buildings of the Byzantine period.

This large single-aisled Basilica was erectedby the Venetians as a Monastery of the Dominican Order. After 1669, it was transformed into a mosque by the Turks, as was almost every other church in the city. 

Its initial form has been restored.
