Old Venetian Harbour of Rethymno

The Old Venetian harbour of Rethymno dates back to the 13th century where it was used as a trade port by the Venetians and later by the Turks. At the end of the mole stands the imposing lighthouse. This is not Venetian, however, as it was built by the Turks after the 17th century.

Many tavernas , the fishing boats rocking on the water and the Venetian buildings create a picturesque whole.

The Venetian harbour is the ideal starting-point for a tour of the old town or a visit to the Fortezza, the Venetian fortress of Rethymnon.

In background the Egyptian Lighthouse and the highest peak of Crete.
