There are several significant religion sites in Chania. In the centre of the city, it is impossible to pass by the Cathedral Temple of Chania, or the Temple of Eisodion of Theotokos without noticing it. When you turn right off Skridlof Street into Halidon Street, you will see this magnificent building that is still an active place for worship — dedicated to Panagia Trimartyri (Virgin of the Three Martyrs), the patron saint of Chania. Before the actual building was turned into a Christian Orthodox cathedral, it served as big storehouse during the Venetian period and as a soap factory in the Ottoman times. The church was reinstated in the place in 1860.
