The capital of the prefecture with the same name, is the second largest city of Crete and lies in the north west part of the island. Chania exists from the Neolithic period (although the ruins are little) and then reemerged during the Minoan times as Cydonia (pronounced “Kydonia”). Visitors can wonder through the “old town” and admire the Venetian remains, the signs of the Ottoman occupation and the Orthodox Byzantine churches.
