The emblematic building at the heart of the modern commercial center of Chania city

The Municipal Market of Chania, the large building of 4000 square meters in the center of Chania is the “heart” of the city. Its foundation works started on August 14, 1911, on the same spot where once stood the main rampart of the fortification during the Venetian period. The building was completed during the second half of 1913.
The official opening ceremony was led by the Prime Minister of Greece, Eleftherios Venizelos, three days after the unification of Crete with Greece, on December 4, 1913. The Municipal Market is cross shaped and has four entrances, one in each ward. Today the Municipal Market houses many small shops that sell local products and souvenirs. The Municipal Market constitutes an architectural jewel for Chania and is one of the most impressive markets in the Balkans.
