One of the several examples of houses built by the Venetians during their occupation of Crete (1204 – 1669 A.D.). It is situated in the old town area of Xania, Crete, Greece.
The Venetian occupation lasted for 450 years. Crete was divided into fiefs (feudal territories), which were handed over to Venetian colonists and entrepreneurs. They named the island and the capital city “Candia” from the Arab. This is also the name from which the word ‘Candy’, (widely used in the USA), comes. It is associated with the sweet that was made there.
