Harbour fortifications in Chania, Crete by

Chania (Greek: Χανιά) is the second largest city of the island of Crete and the capital of the Chania regional unit. The city of Chania can be divided in two parts: the old town and the modern city which is the larger one. The old town is situated next to the old harbour and is the matrix around which the whole urban area was developed.
Despite being heavily bombed during World War II, Chania’s Old Town is considered the most beautiful urban district on Crete, especially the crumbling Venetian harbour. The whole area is generally very picturesque, with many narrow alleys and old charming buildings, some of which have been restored as hotels, restaurants, shops and bars, so this makes it a very lively and colourful place.
