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.

There are lots of buildings like this around the Med and this one is ok but the outside areas are really dirty.

It is true, the Venetians were craftsmen! One of the most beautiful buildings in Heraklion. It's the city's town hall so you can take a stroll inside as well.

A beautiful Venetian style building in the middle of Crete. When I looked at it, just strolling by, I wanted to host a party there.

A real jewel in the centre of Heraklion. A beautiful Venetian building, with the first floor completely restored according to the original "blueprints". At the past was the Venetian Commissioner's Hall, today is the Town Hall but you can visit it and find out some beautiful places inside.

It's interesting to look at the Loggia but it isn't a big deal. However, if you are in Iraklio, you mind as well take a look.
