Great historical building in the center of Heraklion. Another masterpiece of Venetian times. Worth stopping by when passing by and enter inside.

If the local kids are trying to recreate Tirana's notorious pyramid, they are off to a good start. Very dissapointing to see this beautiful historic building so defaced by graffitti as it is one of a few Venetian works still standing. Worth a short visit to remind yourself why high youth unemployment is a bad thing.

Basically next to the Agios Mina's church. The loggia used to have the law makers and still does. The contrast between the ventian loggia, the Orthodox Church and modern coffee houses makes this w worthwhile visit of today

Nice place witch is still used for some gouvernment stuff. For me, it was nice that you could take a walk in it. Unfortunetly, there was a lot of graffity on every pillar or wall.

It is situated at centre of Heraklion. A beautiful Venetian building, with the ground floor completely restored according to the original beauty. In the past, I think it was the Venetian Commissioner's Hall, nowadays it is the Town Hall and when we were there many are enjoying the cool shade provided by this building.

There was a stray pet give away on the portico (so lots of noise) and the courtyard was very unkempt. Don't go out of your way to see this. For a treasure, it's upkeep is underfunded.

There's nothing really to see here just pass through while walking through the old town. It is on your way no need to go specially. Though archeologically beautiful there's nothing to see here

Right in the heart of Heraklion on 25th August street, you can only walk through the bottom part and admire the building's structure. It is unusually mixed in with more modern buildings either side.
