The Agios Minas Cathedral is a Greek Orthodox Cathedral in HeraklionGreece, serving as the seat of the Archbishop of Crete. It was built over the time period of 1862-1895. The construction was interrupted during the Cretan Revolution of 1866–1869.[1] It is one of the largest cathedrals in Greece, with a capacity of 8,000 people [2]
So, thank you Agios Minas for getting us safely to our destination.
I just love sitting in Neapolis with a cold chocolate, or even a cold beer.

You can read some more about that in my book, Tears from the Sun - A Cretan Journey
Buy your copy now from Amazon.  (and I'll love you forever - honestly!)

Talk soon,
