Byzantine churches

The Early Christian Basilica of Agios Titos

  The Early Byzantine church of Agios Titos is one of the most important churches in Crete. It was originally a three-aisled basilica, but its architecture was influenced by the sixth century trends of cruciform architecture developed in Byzantium. A transverse aisle in the middle gives it a cruciform shape. At the ends of this aisle there are conches (domed roof of the apse). There was a dome in the middle, and the church had a narthex in the front. The nave and the arms of the cross are barrel-vaulted and the back of the church has three conches.
