Heraklion is the largest city in Crete (and fifth in Greece) with a population in excess of 120000. It concentrates most of the economic activity of the island, and is the main port of entry to Crete for the majority of visitors and commodities.
History is very much alive in the old town of Heraklion, just like in most Greek cities.
From the old Venetian Harbour, the August 25th Str., leads to the old town’s centre. The central square is dominated by the fountain of the Lions, built by Morozini the venetian governor in 1628. The Town Hall, is today housed in the Venetian Loggia, a building from the same era and next to it, the plateau and the cathedral of Agios Titos an exceptional monument from the Byzantine era.
From the central square the street of the “Central Market” ends at “Kornarou Square” with the coffee house, housed at “Koubes” a Turkish fountain and next to it the “Bembo fountain” built by a Venetian nobleman.
All around the old part of the city you can see the Venetian walls that meet at the old port and “Koules”, the fortress that dominates the old harbour of the city.
