The venetian loggia is a very beautiful building in italian style which nowadays shelters the Town Hall. It is located very close to Morosini Fountain.

Awesome architecture and a building of big historic value. Has survived earthquakes and other disasters, but still well preserved to this day. Mostly its exterior.. Nowdays is the city's municipality. In the heart of the city, close to Lions fountain square and next to the oldest church of the city "Saint Titos"(that dates back to 1200 & rebuilded in 1400s)...

Located near the Lions square, this is a 17th century building with a magnificent exterior. However high the arcaelogical value of the building may be, the local mayors use it a the Mayor Hall, thus not allowing it to be fully accessible to the public...

A short step from the famous Heraklion fountain, is the Loggia, step inside the arches and there are little surprises worth finding, make time for photos

My spouse and I stopped to admire the exterior of this elegant 17th century building. We eagerly stepped inside expecting more, but found graffiti on the walls, and a series of sterile offices. What a shame! This could be such an architectural treasure.

From the building one can see several venetian patters which gives the it a very intersting appearance. Nice to observe the details.

Very interesting building. A bit run down and it is not possible to go inside as it is offices. However on one day when we were in town there were some very interesting bric-a-brac stalls in the open area being run by ladies for a charity that supports poor children. May well be other similar stalls on other days so... More

Excellent example of Venetian architecture, BUT the city does not seem to realize what treasure they got. The Loggia is dirty and there is no maintainance. It's a shame. There was an exibition of dogs when we visited it, and everything smelled.

From outside it looks like an old museum style building, but from inside it is still used for administrative puproses. Nice to observe the mix of locals and tourists.
