AREA & NEIGHBORHOOD
The heart of Chania is still the old town, with its narrow, labyrinthine alleyways and listed buildings dating from different periods, where you can enjoy romantic strolls. Don’t hesitate to wander around the alleys of the old town, looking for the lovely images that await you.
The old town stretches out parallel to the Venetian harbor, from Firkas Fortress and the Maritime Museum to the “Pyli tis Ammou” (Gate of the Sand, or Koum Kapi in Turkish) to the east of the arsenals. This is the part of town within the Venetian walls and includes Byzantine Chania, once enclosed within less extensive walls.
The Public Market, located at 3-minute walking distance from our place is an impressive building, in the town center, built at the beginning of the present century (1911) and houses grocery stores, butchers' shops, a fish market, and vegetable shops. The Public Gardens, next to the Market, are ideal for those in search of shade and tranquility.
The old city has preserved to a great extent the distinctive atmosphere and charm of the Venetian and Turkish periods. Entire Venetian, Turkish and Jewish quarters are saved, with well-preserved buildings in the narrow picturesque streets.
One of the most significant buildings is the large Venetian church of Aghios Frankiskos which today houses the Archaeological Museum of Chania.
The old city leads at the harbor, where many Venetian and Turkish buildings are preserved. At the entrance of the harbor, at its north-east point, is the renovated fort "Firkas", built on 1629, that today houses the Maritime Museum of Chania. To the west of Firkas is the restored Venetian church of San Salvadore that today houses the Byzantine collection of Chania.
Opposite the Firkas fort, is the magnificent lighthouse ("Pháros"), built in the 16th century and restored by the Egyptians. The harbor is protected by a Venetian breakwater, built of huge stones. At the center of the breakwater are the ruins of a fortress.
Along the dock from Firkas to the east "Neoria" - Akti Koundourioti, Venizelos Square, Akti Tombazi and Akti Enoseos - there are some historical buildings such as: The Kioutsouk Hassan Mosque or Giali Tzamissi, The Great Arsenal, Venetian shipyards that today house the 'Mediterranean Centre of Architecture' and The Venetian Shipyards (Neoria).
There is an abundance of offered specialties concerning traditional food, shops for buying souvenirs and local artisan products, sweets and delicacies and so much more. Also, a number of bars for every taste and numerous cafes offering tranquility and beautiful views either hidden inside the alleys or at the old port with great views to the lighthouse of Chania.
