This venetian monument is currently used as the city hall. Very well restored, you can visit it mornings and can get married the too!

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

This is right along the main drag as you walk from the port into the city center. It is worth a look, but sadly as with so many things in Greece there is graffiti on many of the inner walls.

The Loggia was built as an administration center and a social club for the Venetian elite. Poor chaps --they did not enjoy the place for long because it was only after a decade or so that Crete was conquered by Turks and the Venetians had to leave bag and baggage with the Loggia to be enjoyed by the new masters...

Sadly, this lovely building is marred with graffiti like almost every other building in Iraklio.
