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.
