I'm one of Heraklion residents who visit this site more than 2 times per month. It is one of the city’s “jewels”, but also hosts really interesting exhibitions.

The church is a little run down and on our day of visiting there was graffiti on the front wall. The area it is located in is great to people watch over a coffee.
