San Salvatore was a Franciscan Monastery. The Venetians built the Monastery after the 4th Crusade, on the west side of the harbour, where originally a Byzantine church existed. Preserved to this day, this small domed chapel on the east side was expanded to the north and west in three phases from the 15th century (or earlier) until the late Venetian period (middle of 17th century). Today the church houses the Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Collection of Chania.
The south section of the monastery which contained the chapter house, the dormitories, the cloister and garden, possibly the refectory, the calefactory, the sacristy, the cisterns and more, is a unique 3 storey building containing two rental apartments and two residencies. Dialogus Educational Association, aimed at promoting the Greek language and culture and offering support and education to non native speakers of Greek has its headquarters on the premises.

The San Salvatore monastery is one of the very few historical buildings left in Chania which still has its original cloister, offering total privacy from the outside world as well as inquisitive eyes elsewhere in the building.
The monastery is located at the very end of the old harbour promenade, in a quiet neighbourhood (Topanas) behind the nautical museum and opposite the San Salvatore Bastion, where the North-West Gate to the old town used to be. It is also right next to the main parking area at Talo sqare (The "Hand" monument).
Because of its location, San Salvatore is a true haven of peace and quiet within walking distance of every place of interest in the old town of Chania, but also from the ever bustling center of modern Chania city with its many tavernas, bars, shops, amenities and of course beaches.
