The Heraklion Venetian Harbour as you will probably know it, is one of the most picturesque settings in the capital city of Crete, offering an ideal spot for those who wish to relax and unwind from the bustling rhythms of the city. It is located at the end of the 25th of August Street and it used to be the main port of Heraklion. Today, as the new Heraklion port operates as trading and commercial hub, the old Venetian port is used by yachts and fishing boats.
The history of the Venetian Harbour is long and intriguing, just like the city of Heraklion .
Dominating the impressive Venetian Harbour in Heraklion, the Fortress of Koules sets the tone, as it is the landmark of the city. The Fortress of Koules was named ‘Sea Fortress’ by the Venetians but throughout the centuries the Turkish name prevailed. Today Koules gazes across the Aegean Sea reminding everyone the glorious Venetian Era in Candia, the Venetian name of Heraklion.
The mole of the harbor starts here; it offers an ideal place for leisurely strolls during summer. Tourists, visitors and locals enjoy the soothing sea breeze and the view to the harbor. The mole is also an excellent fishing spot; you can see amateur fishermen here waiting patiently for a fish all day long. If you feel like fishing, get your fishing rod or pole and get here. You can start a conversation with locals who will be more than glad to tell you stories about the Fortress and its history.
The Venetian Harbour of Heraklion is particularly nice in the evening hours, and offers the chance for a romantic and intimate stroll.
You can walk along the sea wall that starts from Koules and runs two kilometers into the sea; do not miss sitting for a nice coffee at the ‘Marina’ café opposite from Koules and enjoy a nice glass of ouzo and seafood tidbits at the tavernas around the harbor.
Just right from the Sea Wall there is a lovely pedestrian area offering nice views to the sea; you can stroll admiring the view or take a few pictures from this equally picturesque angle. This strolling path is called Bedenaki by the people of Heraklion, which stands for ‘Little Wall’. Across the road there are tavernas in abundance; their tables spread out on the pedestrian area and they are a popular place to sit and enjoy tidbits with ouzo or raki along with other locals and tourists.
