Crete Sights

Venetian Arsenali

  • Historic District/Site

Updated 09/04/2014

Fodor's Review

As you follow the harbor front east from the mosque, you come to a long line of Venetian arsenali (warehouses) from the 16th and 17th centuries, used to store wares and repair craft. The seawalls swing around to enclose the harbor and end at the old lighthouse that stands at the east side of the harbor entrance; from here you get a magnificent view of the town, with the imposing White mountains looming behind the animated harbor.
