This is a splendid piece of Venetian architecture, nestled in the business and tourist area of Heraklion. It's in very good condition, and provides an entry way to several municipal offices.

When I first saw this building, I was confused - this architectural style is totally Venetian, but not Cretan at all! Than I realised, this, must be one of the administrative buildings, raised by Venetians to rule. It is really beautiful. Very interesting style, and combination of "What the hell is that" and "Oh...

A nice venetian building that houses the City Hall on the main street of the old town a few steps by the harbour. There are plenty of stores and cafes around.

It is on the square near the end of 25 Aug st, so you'll easily find it when crossing this street to check monuments, shops or other attraction. It's a bit simple but still interesting to see

Beautiful from the street, graffi-ed inside. Possibly a nice photo moment where the fountain used to be in the courtyard.
