Chania is the most beautiful and picturesque town in Crete, while it is the second largest. The town of Chania is one of the most beautiful architecturally designed towns in the Mediterranean.
The colourful old Venetian buildings surround the harbour that is guarded by sturdy fortifications. The Venetian ramparts and churches are worth of sightseeing. The Turkish buildings and minaret remind the 250 years of Turkish rule.
Chania is a city of unique beauty, filled with an abundance of fragrant flowers, and boasting a rich cultural heritage. Ancient and modern monuments, the Venetian Harbour and the Old Town, colourful neighbourhoods, a traditional lifestyle and the friendly inhabitants warmly invite you to become acquainted with the city, promising you unforgettable moments. The history of this town reimburses each of its buildings and part of the old remaining.
Chania lies on the ancient site of “Kydonia”, a town of great significance until the end of the second Byzantine period. During the Arabic occupation the town was named “Rhiaddh El Djobn” that means “City of Cheese”. The name “Chania” initially appears as “Canea” during the Venetian rule. The town was the most important spiritual and administrative centre of Western Crete.
In 1645, the Turks following a siege that lasted two months conquered Chania. The revolution that broke out on the Greek mainland during 1821 influenced the Cretans, who attempted to liberate their island from the Turkish occupation, but their rebellion was suppressed by Egyptian troops. The Egyptians then remained in power until 1840 and during that time they exhibited great interest in repairing the old Port.
The dominating “Firkas” fortress is found opposite to the lighthouse at the entrance of the old port. The flag of the Greek republic was hoisted right here in 1913 as the official indication of the CreteĒs union with the Greek state. Chania was the financial, cultural centre of the entire island until recently.
Chania is a place where visitors literally flock to 12 months a year, most of them during the months April to October. The only thing we need to say about the place is that it is repeatedly voted in the last 25 years as one of the top holiday destinations in Europe.
