The Venetian Loggia of Rethimnon
From the northeast corner of the harbour, go directly east on Petichaki street and cross Arkadiou street. The sixteenth century Venetian Loggia on the corner has survived in almost perfect shape.
The sixteenth century Venetian Loggia on the corner has survived in almost perfect shape. The Loggia was an intricate part of Venetian social life providing space for both entertainment and business. Notice the two gargoyles with human faces on the west wall. Each of the three visible walls have three equal semi-circular arches with the middle arch providing an entrance at the ground level. The building is closed, as the city plans to renovate its interior.
