This is an old building with lots of history from the Venetian period which is easy to miss. The outside of the building is interesting, but also step inside to read the history & look at the architecture. It’s free and doesn’t take long.

The Loggia in the centre of the old town is now the Town Hall after having several functions throughout the years. It is well restored and has several interesting features, including the central courtyard. Plaques of famous Cretans are displayed along the covered walkway.

The Venetian Loggia now houses the Town Hall. The ground floor is an open area which accesses a small courtyard.

Good one on the main street. I would recommend touching the south wall with your left hand exactly at noon time. I did that and later I lost 10 Euro, but it is highly likely that I would lose 15 if the touching thing is...More

The location of the loggia is wrong in this app, it's confounded with Agios Titus, even the pictures are a mix!

Visited as part of a trip to the old town of Heraklion. This building and the surrounding cloistered walkway are an excellent distraction from all the noise and bustle of the area round it. It is well maintained and offers interesting and dramatic photographs whether...More
