Heraklion at a glance

Why go

Because Crete’s capital and largest city has an air of Venice about it with neoclassic buildings, shipyards and a grand port.

Local hotspot

The historical central square of Heraklion is surrounded by cafes, stores and restaurants and dominated by the Fountain of the Lions, built by Morosini, the Venetian governor, in 1628.

You probably didn’t know

The wall that was built during the Venetian rule, which enclosed the old town of Chandex, once made Heraklion the strongest fortification in the Mediterranean.

Suggested reading

I’ll Met by Moonlight by W. Stanley Moss (George G. Harrap and Co, 1950) is a non-fictional account of the plot to capture German general Heinrich Kreipe near Heraklion during WWII.
