Holy Temple of Saint Menas, Heraklion Crete

The imposing church of Saint Menas, one of the biggest in Greece, founded on March 25, 1862 as an expression of gratitude of the people of Herakleon for the protection the Saint offered in the city. The position in which it was built, it is said to have been indicated by a monk, when Saint Menas presented in a vision.

At a young age Manolis Tzirtzilakis followed his uncle Stelios Kartaki in painting the murals of St. Minas in Heraklion Crete.
