Chania City – Venetian Harbour

Main Excursion Information

Chania City

Chania is the location according to which the Minoans built “Kydonia”. From excavations made in various districts, such as the one in Kastelli, it became known that the area was inhabited since the Neolithic era. The city was after the Minoan era an important city-state with boundaries from the sea to the foot of the White Mountains. The first colonizers from mainland Greece were the Dorians around 1100 B.C. Kydonia was in constant conflicts with the other city states in the region, such as theApteratheFalasarnaand Polyrinia. Homer also mentioned it in the Odyssey (iii.330).[3]In 69 BC the Roman consul Caecilius Metellus conquered Kydonia, which received privileges as an independent city-state from the Romans, where it retained the right to have its own currency until the 3rd century AD.

Venetian Harbour of Chania

It was built by the Venetians from 1320 to 1356. The Venetian port served the trade and control of the sea of Crete to combat piracy. In the 16th century, due to the looming Turkish threat, the new Venetian plans for the fortification of the city included the port. The Firkas fortress is constructed at the entrance of the port to the west and is reinforced with the Bastion of Agios Nikolaos Molos on the breakwater. In case of threat, a thick chain was tied from the Firkas Fortress to the opposite base of the Lighthouse, closing the entrance of the port.
