The Loggia, built in Venetian days in between 1626-1628, is one of Heraklion's most famous historic attractions. The architecture of the city hall is wonderful, if not awe-inspiring. For those walking down Heraklion's most visited street, it's impossible to miss. The building is a fascinating...More
