Interesting modern architectural sites in Chania include the neoclassic buildings of Venizelos’ house and Prince George’s residence in Halepa, Chania.
Villages of Crete amalgamate architectural features from the Minoan era to the present time. It is easier to see the traditional architectural style in villages which are uninhabited today. One such village is Aradena in Sfakia, and another is Mili in Rethimnon. The village of Maroulas, near Rethimnon, has remnants of many different eras. The pleasant village of Argiroupolis has been built on top of an ancient city (Lapa) and has integrated features of many different historical eras.
A peculiar style of architecture in some parts of Crete is the mitata (hut for cheese production): a circular stone hut that has been made by piling the stones on each other with each consecutive circle being closer to the middle.
