Kiuchuk Hassan Mosque
The mosque that stands in the Venetian harbor of Chania is a typical mosque built in the 17th century and was called the Gialos Mosque (Yali Mosque) or Kiuchuk Hassan. It is an impressive building of Islamic art during the Renaissance. The mosque is still preserved today and decorates the harbor area.
The Egyptian Lighthouse at the port of Chania was actually built by the Venetians in the 16th century. Its height is 21 meters and the transmitted signal can reach up to 6 nautical miles. Perhaps a trademark of the port, it has been photographed thousands of times and is an iconic symbol of the city. It was built on a rock and in the 19th century and it was rebuilt by the Egyptians, so it took its name. Today it adorns the entrance of the Venetian harbor to Chania.
