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

Only stopped to take photos as we walked past... wish I'd wandered inside too now. A beautiful and unusual building in what is now a generally rather ugly city.

Typical Venetian-style loggia in front of city hall--reconstructed after damage from earthquake and WWII. Stop for a minute and look at it!

Nice building to look at as you pass by. Haven't been inside so can't comment on that. Lots of cafes/restaurants nearby.

Venetian architecture on Crete...beautiful old façade and interior near the harbor and old town...many photo ops for shutterbugs, take a break and enjoy a drink in a nearby taverna or coffee shop. The Loggia shouldn't be missed on your stroll through Heraklion.

The history of loss and rebuilding makes me glad that in the end, some of this magnificent public building was saved.
