Loggia / Herklion

Nice old historical construction with many arcs; probily from the venetian time, and I think it's the City Hall, the municipality of Heraklion.

This elaborated building, close to the Morosini fountain, has a complex and reach architecture, similar to those built by Venice in many town in Veneto. It houses now City Hall and it is worth a visit.

the Loggia is located naturally on the main street of Heraklion and dates back to the Venetian times ; it is naturally worth taking a picture or two of it as it has a special archtecture,different from the Cretan culture ;

The Loggia is located near the Morosini fountain, ergo you can easily combine a visit to both followed by a visit to the Venetian harbor just downhill. The building is one of the Venetian period eye catching sights.

Beautiful building. Worth a nosey if you're in Heraklion any way. Wouldn't go out of my way to see it. But definitely stop by if you're in the city centre

When you visit Iraklio, do plan to walk by. This is one of the few remaining buildings from the Venice occupation of the city. In the Venice quarter, you can certainly see and feel the Venetian style.

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.
