History of the Old Town

Chania has a rich culture which echoes throughout the architecture of the town. A stay at the Astraia Residence will connect you with Chania's colourful history and draw you into all that the town has to offer.

Despite being heavily bombed during World War II, Chania's Old Town is considered the most beautiful urban district on Crete, especially the crumbling Venetian harbour. The borders of the Old Town are the mostly destroyed old Venetian wall and this has been the cradle of all the civilizations which were developed in the area. The central part of the old town is named Kasteli and has been inhabited since Neolithic times. It is located on a small hill right next to the seafront and has always been the ideal place for a settlement due to its secure position, its location next to the harbour and its proximity to the fertile valley in the south. Nowadays it is a bit more quiet than the neighbouring areas of the west part of the district. The Splantzia quarter (next to the east part of Kasteli) is also largely untouched and very atmospheric.

The beautiful city of Chania has preserved its original colours and historical character, throughout time. It is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Greece and the most picturesque city of Crete. The Venetian, Turkish and modern architectures all combine harmoniously to create a unique attraction. The town also features archaeological sites, temples, and numerous cultural attractions.
