Firka Fortress

The historic fortress was built to protect the entrance to the port and is only part of the overall fortification system of the city. It is also called by its Turkish name, which means barracks. It is actually of Venetian construction and is a wonderful example of military construction and organization. From the Observatory visitors can admire the port of Chania and the lighthouse, just opposite, on the edge of the waterfront.
