Short history of Chania

Chania is the second largest town in the island after the city of Heraklion.
The town has been continuously inhabited for five millennia as recent excavations have shown.

Remains of Minoan town of Kydonia (which first appeared in 3000BC) have been found in the Kasteli quarter of the old town. The town of Kydonia flourished in the Classical and Byzantine periods. In the Venetian times it was called La Canea, a name coming from the ancient Greek toponym Alchania.

After 1851 it was the seat of the pasha of Crete and in 1898 it became the capital of a semi-autonomous Cretan State, until 1913 when the island of Crete became officially part of Greece.

A tour around the town of Chania

A first-time visitor to Chania is surprised by the great number of buildings and monuments which track the great history and the rich civilisation of the town. The Old Town in particular, built upon the ruins of Minoan Kydonia, is a vibrant open-air museum presenting the cultural heritage of western Crete. MOSAIC VENETIAN HARBOUR SUITES, situated at the centre of the Old Port, is an ideal residence for those who wish to explore this heritage.

The Minoan civilisation in Chania left behind the remains of grand tombs, interesting ceramics and objects which are now on exhibit at the local archaeological museum. Archaeological findings and historic research have shown that -even after the end of the Minoan civilization- the town of Kydonia remained as a centre of power until the Roman times.

During the Byzantine period Chania was still a powerful fortress town.
