Full description:

Property for sale situated in the Venetian port of Chania, on the coast. It is a neoclassical two-storey building of a total of 298.72sqm (149.36sqm each). It was restored in 2006 and has been used as a restaurant-cafe-bar ever since.
People who choose to visit the establishment enjoy an excellent view to the Fortezza, the sea and the famous lighthouse.
The Venetian port in Chania was built during 1320 and 1356 AD. The port catered for commercial use as well as the control of the seas around Crete and the fight against pirates. It used to hold as many as 40 galleon ships but it suffered continuous aggradations and it never was very deep. As a result it always needed dredging which was a difficult task to accomplish by the means available during that era.
On the northern side it is protected by a sea wall and in the middle there is a small bastion and the small christian church of Saint Nickolas. Venetians and Turks used to execute their prisoners at that part of the harbour.
The Firkas fortress at the mouth of the port and the bastion of Saint Nickolas in the middle of it used to protect the port from pirate raids.
Nowadays, the Venetian port caters for fishing boats and other small craft while the commercial and passenger port of Chania is situated 7 kilometres to the east, at Souda bay. It is characterized by the landmark lighthouse which was built by the Venetians at the entrance of the harbour and it was restored by the Egyptians (1830-1840) to its present form. The lighthouse in the Venetian port of Chania always captures the imagination of the city's tourists and is definately the most photographed site in Crete.
One hardly finds any such sites, so deeply charged with historical memories that unfold before our eyes with the exquisite craftsmanship of the architecture of the buildings that surround the Venetian port and carry smells of ancient times taking the visitor to a nostalgic game of the senses, an amalgam of East and West. Alongside the historic monuments there are contemporary restaurants, cafes, bars that add to the port's charm and add the necessary notes of vitality and coziness all year round.
