Fortezza, the church of Agia Ekaterini
From this area of the Fortezza we won't go straight on - although we could - in order to present our tour of the fortress more clearly. We return towards the Erofili Theatre and then turn left, towards the mosque visible in the background.
Walking along the cobbled path, the first building on our right is the Orthodox church of Agia Ekaterini (St Catherine), dating from the late 19th century.
Just to the north, next to the mosque, is the so-called Bishop's Palace, dating to the 16th century. This is an imposing building, preserved in good condition, which was probably originally used as the seat and residence of the Catholic bishop.
