Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Collection of Chania

Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Collection of Chania consists not only of rich archaeological material, which has been gathered from the excavations that the 13th Byzantine Antiquities had been conducting for many years in the county, but also of heirlooms and items offered by individuals.

Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Collection of Chania holds a clear record of the historical and artistic development of the western prefecture of Crete from the early Christian, Byzantine times to the Ottoman occupation. Representative samples are exposed in the church of San Salvatore. This church is the bastion of the northern – western corner of the Venetian fortifications of the city.

The exhibits of Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Collection of Chania were grouped in modules based on their type. There you will have the opportunity to see mosaics, funerary inscriptions, paintings, photos, architectural sculptures, paintings, ceramics, miniatures, and currencies.

The exhibits of each module are presented in chronological succession. Maps and explanatory tables instruct visitors of the origin of the exhibits and the historical context of the period they were created.
