A taste of both worlds
Rich Past – Modern Present
Chania city is the capital of the prefecture, with a very long and rich history and its older quarters are characterized by the multifaceted architecture, influenced by the Venetian, Turkish and Jewish habitants that colonized the city throughout the centuries.
The most famous landmark of the city is the Egyptian Lighthouse facing the old Venetian Harbor, which stood proud and resistant to weather conditions facilitating the safe passage of the commercial boats of previous centuries, when Chania was a commercial and cosmopolitan crossroad between the East and the West, the North and the South of the Mediterranean Sea.
Fort Firca, the Kioutsouk Hassan Tzamissi, the imposing Venetian and Turkish walls of the town, the Turkish and Jewish quarters with the picturesque two-storey houses, the Venetian mansions and the neoclassical buildings spread throughout the old town, compose a unique urban landscape interconnected with mazelike alleys.
Chania today is a very popular holiday destination worldwide thus is very well organized and always prepared to welcome its visitors and unfold its beauties as one explores the narrow, pedestrian alleys and the infamous Venetian harbor, or visits its modern part for shopping and more.
