Places of interest
History is very much alive in the old town of Heraklion, just like in most Greek cities. From the old Venetian Harbour, the August 25th Str., leads to the old town's centre. The central square while surrounded by cafes, stores and restaurants, is dominated by the fountain of the Lions, built by Morozini the venetian governor in 1628. The Town Hall, is today housed in the Venetian Loggia, a building from the same era and next to it, the plateau and the cathedral of Agios Titos an exceptional monument from the Byzantine era. From the central square the street of the "Central Market" ends at "Kornarou Square" with the coffee house, housed at "Koubes" a Turkish fountain and next to it the "Bembo fountain" built by a Venetian nobleman. To the left "Averof Str." leads to "Eleftherias sq.", Heraklion's main square where the Archaeological museum stands and to the right 'Kyrillou Loukareos Str" leads to Agios Minas cathedral and Agia Aikaterini Museum. All around the old part of the city, a visitor can walk following the Venetian walls that meet at the old port and "Koules", the fortress that dominates the old harbour of the city. The visitor to Heraklion should definitely visit the archaeological site at Knossos and the Archaelogical Museum of Heraklion that houses most of the Minoan findings in Crete. Special attention should also be paid to the Historical Museum of Heraklion that houses findings from the early Christian era to today and the Museum of Natural History.
