The Cretan city of Chaniá is very popular with tourists for its picturesque harbors and old town. A lot of its Venetian architectural heritage has survived. It’s not surprising that, after the Turks conquered the island, Chaniá was the favored location for traders from the Christian west to set up shop—not just because it was Crete’s westernmost seaport, but also because it had a more European feel.
