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.

A sample of venetian Architecture and the town's city hall- A place to be seen in connection with all the nearby monuments but also with a walk for coffee or food or shopping in all the nearby shops and café of the city center

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. It seems the young men here are hell bent on showing their banal insights through the medium of spray paint. None of it is art, but the Loggia is, so it is additionally disappointing to see how irresponsible the young people in this community are,... More

The only thing that makes this remotely interesting is that it looks a bit out-of-place in modern Heraklion. There are nicer buildings from the same period of time all over Europe. When I was there it was also covered in graffiti. (As is a lot of Greece right now, sadly). Worth a look if you are nearby (there are loads... More

Not much to see except it is good example of architecture from the Venetian epoch. You can't miss it as it is on the main pedestrian avenue.
