Archeological Museum– Housed in the earlier Venetian monastery of St. Francis, curated with sensitivity and thoughtfulness, the museum reflects the many layers of Chania’s and Crete’s magnificent past.
Byzantine & Post Byzantine Collection-. The restoration of the old church of San Salvatore is impressive and reflects several architectural features from the Venetian and Ottoman periods.
The Maritime Museum of Crete– Displays of model ships dating back to the Bronze Age, naval instruments, photographs and paintings illustrate the vast naval history of our harbour town, including a look at The Battle of Crete. Located in the Firkas Fortress, the museum offers wonderful views, as well as being a historic building.
Ancient Kydonias (at the junction of Kanevarou and Kandanoleon streets) excavation began in the early 1960’s and the work continues to this day. Having been remodeled by a succession of occupiers, it was this area that suffered the most during the bombings of WWII.
Kastelli Hill is the area above Kanevaro Street, and bore the brunt of the 1941 bombing attack. The remains of the Venetian Rector’s Palace are located up Lithinon Street, but the age of the walls may date back to the Byzantines.
The Egyptian Lighthouse at the entrance to Chania’s harbour reflects our multicultural past. The base is Venetian and once bore the emblem of Venice- the Lion of St. Mark. The current tower was built between 1824 and 1832 by Egyptian troops who were part of the Ottoman Empire. The 1.5km walk around the sea wall is well worth it for a splendid view of the city and the White Mountains.
