Municipal Market of Chaniathe heart of the city
The Municipal Market of Chania, the large building of 4000 square meters in a surrounding area of 17.200 square meters, is the "heart" of the city.
It is an original building that, apart from a business activity center, also provides a concrete image of the ancient Greek marketplace. In general, on the eastern and western part of the market there were butcher shops, on the end of the west arcade there were the fish shops and on the north and south ends there were the fruit and vegetables shops. In 1980, the Municipal Market of Chania was declared a protected monument by the Ministry of Culture.
