This building will remind you for sure of Italian loggias. Because it has indeed the same origin. It is a nice building, beautifully restored, that now is used as the Town Hall of Heraklio. You cannot enter inside but the courtyards are open.

Built by the Venetians in 1620, it is now fully restored and houses the Heraklion Town Hall. While its exterior is the main draw, it is open to the public and located on 25th Avgoustou St.

This is the old Venetian officers club. In nowadays it serves as a Town Hall. The surrounding bars and shops, together with the absence of any vehicles around the building is a pro. Relax...

Truly Venetian architecture in the centre of Heraklion. Beautiful and a MUST SEE!! It is a municipal building now, but tourists are allowed to wander through and enjoy the history.

It's amazing that the Ottomans left the building standing. It's a must see in the middle of Heraklion.

If you are visiting the center of Heraklion you can't avoid this place. Is verry nice to visit it in the night, when this place becomes a center of nightlife. You can stay here, eat something from a nearby restaurant/ taverna/ snack bar and wach...More

It is quite pretty, but with many of the heraklion buidlings, its worth the quick stop and photo opp, but don't expect to spend much time to gather too much new info there.

This is an ancient, nice building with limited access to interior. Worth a look if nearby but somewhat overshadowed by surroundings.
