Archeological Museum : Michelin's recommendations
The Archeological Museum is housed in the former church of St Francis, built in the 14C in the Venetian Gothic style; it has a nave and two aisles with ogival vaulting. It was the church for a Franciscan convent and was turned into a mosque by the Turks. The exhibits include magnificent painted sarcophagi and ceramics from the Minoan period and Roman mosaics. The pretty garden has palm trees and other exotic plants around a fine hexagonal Turkish fountain.
