The town of Chania is the capital of the homonym prefecture. Chania is a beautiful town, which is separated into the old and the new town.
The old town with the Venetian port, is characterized by old mansions, traditional buildings and cobblestone paths. The best spot in Chania is the lighthouse at the east side of the town winking all night long. If you happen to be in the town, don’t miss taking a walk around the cobblestone paths and buy handmade webs and objects of folkloric art.
