Located right down the street from the Lion's fountain (and on the way to St. Mark's Castle), you'll walk by the Loggia. If you're not careful, you'll miss it! While you can't go into the building (other than the courtyard area), it is a great...More

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.

Not far from the Lion's fountain / Morosini Fountain, is this Venetian Loggia. Most people stand in front of it, take pictures of the front of it and move on. DON'T! Take a couple of steps further into the courtyard, if open and look up....More

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.

You will walk pass this many times, but take the time to visit the very small courtyard and view it. It is impressive from the outside.

This is an attractive building on the main street in Heraklion. The façade is not big but still impressive with with portico style arches and walkways. I believe this was once the town hall.

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!
