The Loggia in the centre of the old town is now the Town Hall after having several functions throughout the years. It is well restored and has several interesting features, including the central courtyard. Plaques of famous Cretans are displayed along the covered walkway.

The Venetian Loggia now houses the Town Hall. The ground floor is an open area which accesses a small courtyard.

Located on August 25th street. The Loggia was constructed by Francesco Morosini (who also built thte Morosini Fountain) in 1626-28. Today it is housing the Town Hall.
