Private guided tour medieval Heraklion
This tour begins at the most important medieval fortification network of the entire Mediterranean Sea.
The walls of Chandax (Latinized as Candia, the former name of Heraklion) were built in the 16th century when Crete was still under Venetian domination.
Designed by Michele Samischeli, a military architect and urban planner from Verona (and possibly the only architect who had studied Greek architecture), they stretched for four kilometers and featured seven great bastions, four main gates, several side gates, underground tunnels, and a gun powder room.
