The Mitropolis cathedral is located on a square in the busy Halidon Street (a shopping street in the center of Chania). This is the main street of the center, which runs directly to the port. The Mitropolis church is the seat of the Archbishop. This church dates from the late 19th century and is built by a Muslim that wanted to thank the Holy Virgin Mary in this way for curing his son. Almos diagonally opposite the Mitropolis church you will find the Archaeological Museum of Chania.
