The Castle was constructed by the Venetians in the early 13th century, when they conquered the town. Today it is called "Koules" which means “fortress” in Turkish.

Perfect scenery for a lot of pictures. Pay a visit, it is absolutely free. The harbour with the small boats is usually colourfull.

Surprisingly spacious and well worth the €2 full price entrance fee. Many informative signs throughout. Beautiful views of the sea and the city

It is the best place if you want a walk at night under the moonlight and near the sea. There are a lot of restaurants there if you want to enjoy fresh fish with your friends.

Τέλειο μέρος για περπάτημα, ηρεμία και χαλάρωση. Ειδικά όταν ο καιρός το επιτρέπει.

Très beau fort et une jetée qui donne envie de se promener et d'y passer de longues heures à regarder la mer et écouter le bruit des vagues pour les amoureux!

Από τα καλύτερα σημεία του Ηρακλείου για περπάτημα και τρέξιμο.

아침에 일찍일어나 조깅하기 좋은 곳. 바다 공기 마시며 왕복하면 5킬로는 달리는 듯.. 다만 바닥에 소금이 오랜세월 쌓여 굳어서 그런지 은근히 바닥이 미끄러우니 조심해야 함. 밤에는 조명이 없어서 상당히 무서움. 아침에 조깅코스로는 강추

Πρόκληση το τρέξιμό του και ξανα πίσω! Πολύ όμορφο το βράδυ ή για βόλτα με το ποδήλατο.

Η απογευματινή βόλτα με φόντο το ηλιοβασίλεμα δε συγκρίνεται με κάτι άλλο...
