Heraklion Crete GreeceHeraklion ( Crete ) is the capital of the island. It is the largest urban center. The city, built on the north end of the county, in its long journey has seen many invaders and seasons of prosperity and decline were exchanged several times leaving their mark on the city's skyline. So far, the construction of the town is of particular interest in the contrasts. Historical buildings, Venetian monuments and modern buildings all have a place in this diverse city. The Venetian harbor, the Koules fortress at the entrance, to the left of the current port are all features the visitor will encounter on a tour of the city. The nearby beaches (Amoudara Amnisos, Linoperamata) are an oasis after sightseeing.
