Striking Building

Cool architecture built by the Venetians. It is now the City Hall. It's right on the main walking street so saunter on in for a gander.

A beautiful building, very well restored. Nice to take pictures at different times to get different lights.

Very unique experience finding this in the recent city of Herakleion which is full of concrete based cubical houses. You can only visit just part of the building, because it serves as a townhall.

Tried to go in, but unfortunately closed. Loved the architecture.. Pity there were some gypsies in the courtyard hanging around with their worldly goods

This building is currently the City Hall of Heraklion. Worth checking out for the building. The sunlit "Loggia" feature is pleasant to look at and photograph. We took awesome photography there.

This is a building that was reproduced in the 60's based on the original structure. It's beautifully done, and has a nice foyer area with shade. But, other than its current use as city hall, there is nothing spectacular or impressive about it. Building something like this in the 60's is far less interesting to me than building it 400...

This building is currently the City Hall of Heraklion. It is a wonderful display of Venetian architecture on the outside, although the inside is just offices of the city. The sunlit "Loggia" feature is pleasant to look at and photograph.

Neat place, worth checking out for the building. Other than that not much else going on there, but you should still check it out.

In the heart of the city this building has much to offer the traveller. Would highly recommend a visit given the other things to see and do around the immediate area.
