The Agios Titos Church is a wonderful 19th century building located in a cobblestone square, right next to a paved road that leads to the Heraklion harbor. Great place to seat, relax and soak up some sun. Do not miss.

A beautiful restored church that welcomes all. Set in the heart of Heraklion it’s an escape from the bustle of the city. You may even wish to light a candle in memory of a loved one.

I confirm the above answer. I personally took photos inside Agios Titos Church, and most probably you can use Video recording too. The Church can easily accommodate over 200 people.
