Area Information

The area of Halepa:

Halepa is one of the most beautiful and historical areas of Chania city, located on the eastern side. The area is considered the Aristocratic district of the city featuring historic buildings and old mansions, many of them in the neoclassical architectural style. The most important political events of Crete took place in Halepa in the late 19th century, such as the signing of the ‘treaty of Halepa’ in 1878 which granted partial autonomy to the island.: During the Cretan Democracy, Halepa was the home of many wealthy merchants and politicians and became the center of the diplomatic activities in Crete. The house of Eleftherios Venizelos is located here, one of the most successful statesmen in Greek modern history. Other historic buildings of the Halepa quarter worth seeing include the old Greek Embassy, the old French Academy, now serving as the Cretan School of Architecture, the palace of Prince George and the picturesque Russian-style church of Saint Magdaline. Today the Halepa district is an upmarket suburb of Chania city, with its rich history evident throughout its neighbourhoods. The area’s proximity to Chania centre and the beautiful views over the city and the coast, make it a highly sought-after area for residence
