At the bottom of Halidon street you reach Sandrivani Square. Sandrivani Square was once at the heart of Chania. It was a local gathering place for Christians during the Turkish occupation. The fountain in square has been replaced with a new one. As you enter the square, directly in front of you, there is a Venetian construction, the Palazzo Hotel. It has an outer staircase with the remains of a fountain below it.
On the right there is a large three-storey building overlooking the square, dating from the sixteenth century. This building has been a hospital, an Admiralty, and a Town Hall.
Approximately 100 metres on the left from Sandrivani Square, there is a characteristic Venetian staircase under which there are the remains of a fountain.
