Heraklion

General Information about Heraklion

Heraklion is the capital of Crete, located in the north-central part of the island. It is a very modern and vibrant city surrounded by old Venetian walls. An ideal place for a walk is the fortress of Koules, built by the Venetians in the 16th century and one of the most quintessential symbols of the city. The city of Heraklion has a rich history and many interesting sites and monuments to visit. One of them is the Venetian Loggia Building, built in the 17th century as a meeting place for wealthy aristocrats. Today, the loggia houses the town hall. In the Heraklion region, you will find two of the most important Minoan monuments: the Palaces for Knossos and Phaistos. Knossos is located 5 km outside the city and is the largest palace of the Minoan civilization and probably the main reason to visit Heraklion. The Minoan Palace of Phaistos is the second most important Minoan site. It is located on the east side of Kastri hill, in the Messara plain, surrounded by a beautiful natural environment and attracts history enthusiasts from all over the world! After all, it was one of the noblest centers of power in the grand age of Minoan civilization. Back in the city centre, the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, one of the most important museums in Greece, must also be added to your list of things to do. The exhibits include fascinating samples from all periods of Cretan history, covering 5,500 years. If sightseeing is not one of your top priorities, then head straight to the beautiful beaches! The northern and southern coasts of the Heraklion region are covered with breathtaking beaches, such as the former “hippy paradise” of Matala beach on the southern coast and the crystal clear waters of Agia Pelagia and the long sandy beach in Malia on the north coast. Heraklion is a well-organized region with many years of experience in tourism. Driving around Heraklion and the other regions of Crete, you will enjoy wild natural beauty but will always be a short way away from good accommodation and excellent food and can always switch easily between a secluded beach to a buzzing town. Rent a car in Heraklion and explore the island of Crete.
