CRETE - SEPTEMBER 2007
Of the four main cities in Crete - Heraklion, Chania, Rethymno and Agios Nicolaus, Chania is probably the most interesting. No wonder that after the 2006 visit, we got back there in 2007. And actually, only a technicality made it difficult to return in 2008...
"PEDESTRIAN - The small streets near the port, mostly pedestrian only, are pretty charming"
"PENSION ROOM - In case you're interested, some pensions even display a standard room right at the street level for you to choose..."
"MOSQUE OF THE JANISSARIES - The Turkish mosque (Hassan Pasha) was built in 1645. It houses now an art gallery. Posted to be compared with this one"
"CALECHE - The poor horse seems in difficulty to stand the hot sun..."
"THE VENETIAN FOUNTAIN - Version two to be compared with version one..."
"MONASTIRI - A nice place for a snack break"
"PANAGIA TRIMARTIRIS - The Orthodox Cathedral of Chania was built around the 13th century. During the Turkish era, it is said that the church was converted into a soap factory but was still regarded as a sacred place... Another one to be compared with the 2006 version... You'll probably notice the effects of ShiftN!"
"NOSTOS HOTEL - It has a nice view towards the port!"
"TAVERNA SULTANA - Prepared for the night clients; dinner table booked for 11:00 p.m. is not surprising..."
"CHANIA MUSEUM - An addition to the 2006 visit..."
"CASA DELFINO - Another view of the elegant 17th Century Venetian mansion that is the only luxury hotel near the Old Venetian Harbour"
