Archaeological Museum of Chania

The Archaeological Museum of Chania is in Chalepa, a historic suburb in Chania, housed in an iconic building constituting a landmark for the whole city. The museum's permanent collection is developed in three main halls on the ground floor and one more on the first floor, presenting the wealth of archaeological material that has been retrieved from the periphery of Chania through the course of time.



Venizelos Tombs

The tombs of the historical Venizelos family are found on a hilltop where it is ironically one of the most popular spots in the city to enjoy panoramic views of Chania. The location is only a few kilometers away from the city center. Here lies the charismatic Greek politician, and seven times Prime Minister of Greece, Eleftherios Venizelos and his son, Sofoklis Venizelos, who was also Prime Minister of Greece from 1943 to 1952. In the same plot, one will find the small chapel of Profitis Ilias and the statue of national hero, Spyros Kagialedakis or Kagiales. On February 9, 1897 (Revolution of 1897), during the bombing of the revolted Cretans by the fleet of the great forces, Spyros Kagialedakis used his body as a flagstaff to raise the Greek flag that had been dropped by the ships’ bombshells.

Agia Triada Monastery

The Agia Triada (Holy Trinity) Monastery is situated in Akrotiri, approximately 15 kilometers from Chania city. Built in the 17th century by Venetian noblemen, the monastery is known for its impressive architecture, rich history, and stunning natural surroundings. The architecture of the Agia Triada Monastery is a blend of Venetian and Byzantine styles. The monastery is located in a beautiful natural setting, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. The monastery also has a garden with a variety of herbs and plants, as well as a small museum with artifacts and historical items.





Old Town of Chania

The old town is built around the Venetian port and is also a relatively integral area where Venetian buildings and later Turkish elements compose a unique architectural style. Due to the historic center of Chania with its Venetian walls defining the borders between the old and new city and its ramparts, the city has been pronounced as preserved. It consists of five connected districts surrounding the Venetian port.
