Loggia (The City Hall)

The Loggia is an architectural masterpiece of 1628, which in its time was the center of administrative and social life of the city of Heraklion. It is a Venetian monument, where the nobles, princes and feudal lords used to meet to take decisions on issues concerning the economic and commercial life of the region. It also functioned as a meeting place and entertainment site for the nobility of Crete. 

Its name derives from the Italian "loggia", meaning "Gallery" and now houses the City Hall of Heraklion.

 
Taking a walk around the center of Heraklion it is difficult not to come across it as it is very near the Basilica of San Marco and the famous Lions.
