Modern city tour: Chalepa - Tampakaria

In addition to the historical and tourist center of Chania and the walls of the old city, we suggest you to visit the historical district of Chalepa with the mansions of the 19th and 20th century, and Tambakaria.

We begin walking east of the Municipal Market of Chania (A) to the aristocratic district of Chalepa. There we can see the palace of Prince George and the house of Eleftherios Venizelos (B) that today hosts the National Research Foundation “Eleftherios K. Venizelos”, with his statue placed in the homonymous square, the French School (1860), the Russian church of Agia Magdalini and the church of Evangelistria.

When we come back from Chalepa to the city, it worth visiting the round Eleftherias Square (C) with the statue of Eleftherios Venizelos in the center, opposite of the Courthouse and the Prefecture of Chania City. Finally, in Dimokratias Street is located Despotiko and the Cultural Center of Iera Mitropoli Kydonias and Apokoronou, the Religious Center of Chania, the Park of Peace and Friendship, the old Italian barracks, the Public Clock, the Public Gardens (D) and the facilities of the National Stadium of Chania.
