This is the ‘small’ church of St. Menas and the Pantanassa (Most Holy Queen of All), with its intricate, gilded, wood-carved chancel screen and its valuable 18th century icons painted by renowned Cretan hagiographers.

The church is linked to a bloody incident in the city’s history, as it was the site where, in June 1821, during the Divine Liturgy, the Ottomans slaughtered the Metropolitan, the Bishops, as well as ordinary citizens.
