Location:

Located in one of the most desired areas of Chania, just 0,5km from the closest beach. In the exterior of the east Venetian walls, near the sandy beach, a village of poor North African slaves and Ottomans was built. They lived in tents and huts and did all the harsh jobs in the portside. This region was called Gate of the Sand from the Venetian gate which is still preserved in our days.

Today the area is one of the most developed districts of the city which gathers thousands of visitors every summer who come to enjoy the view to the sea and the numerous high quality cafeterias and restaurants.

Chania dates back to the Neolithic period and recent archaeological digs on the acropolis of Kasteli have uncovered remains of a significant Minoan community. Known as Kydonia in the past it was one of the most important cities of Crete right up to the Arabian seizure in 824 AD. The Venetians purchased Crete in about 1204 but lost it to the Genoese between 1267 and 1290. The city of Chania was rebuilt on the site of the Byzantine acropolis in 1252 and after improving the fortifications at Kastelli the Venetians built their own cathedral plus many palaces and houses in the surrounding area for their people. In 1645, after a two month siege with terrible losses, the Turks overwhelmed the whole island. Chania became the Turkish island capital. Its churches were converted to mosques. Every new building is designed and constructed with Turkish rhythms and many constructions like baths (hamams) mosques are saved from those years. The Turks were expelled in 1898 when Prince George became the High Commissioner of Crete, though the actions of the Great Powers of Britain, France and Russia.

The official union of Crete with the rest of Greece, on December 13th, 1913, with the raising of the Greek flag on Firka fort, led to a cease in turmoil and hard oppression on the proud and brave Cretan people. This pride and bravery was last called on to fight against German occupation, when Chania was turned into a battlefield in 1941 (battle of Crete). With distinguished gallantry, the residents battled with the 3.500 German parachutists, in the area of Maleme (20km west of Chania). That same year, the town of Chania was bombarded, destroying the largest part of the Venetian citadel and eastern district of Splantzia.

Worth visiting:

The old town, around the Venetian harbour, where you can see many graphic homes and buildings from the Venetian period, giving the town a special atmosphere. It is also the centre of night-life with many bars and clubs.
Don't forget to visit the lighthouse and Firkas fort where during the summer months, many theatrical performances and shows take place at the fort, which is also a naval museum.
