Continuing down Odos 25 Avgoustou (25 of August) you will see the reconstructed Loggia, heavily damaged in World War II, on the next corner. During Venetian times it was a meeting place for nobility and then it was used as a government building by the Turks. The city has restored it and presently uses it as an exhibition hall. On the north side of the Loggia is the Sagrendo Fountain, built in 1602. The fountain has a defaced female figure which is assumed to represent the nymph Crete, who according to the Greek mythology was the mother of Pasiphae, the wife of Minos.
