There are many remains of beautiful Venetian buildings all over Crete. Particularly architecturally important are the Loggia of Iraklion, the Loggia of Rethimnon, as well as the Villa De Mezzo in Etia, Sitia, and the Villa Trevisan in Treveziana, near Kastelli, Kissamos. Many houses in the old towns of Chania, Rethimnon and Iraklion still have visible evidence of their Venetian origin. The old town of Chania retains the ambience of a Venetian town of the past and buildings are protected by a historical preservation law.
