Another Fort for you !

Back to our recent Mediterranean cruise.

Another fort I managed to persuade my wife and friends to look at was the one at the entrance to Heraklion harbour in Crete.

Built originally by the Venetians, it has been beautifully restored and is now a very good museum.

I'll let the pictures do the talking ...

At the fore of this picture is a squid hanging at the restaurant where we had a coffee before returning to the ship !  Several cats were prowling below it wondering how they could get at it !!!

So that's Heraklion fort.


  1. Impressive, and nicely preserved. I'm not sure if my wife and I'll ever make it to Crete, but if we do we'll be sure to visit the fortress. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for sharing. It brings back happy memories of my visit in 1986. I remember being amazed at the depth of history in Crete.
