The port of Heraklion due to its geographical placement along with being well equipped is today on of the most important and busy port in Mediterranean Sea. Many

Historic data:

In the Minoan times there was much activity with indications of a commercial center that possibly went even deeper into the mainland up to the Knossos area.

In the Greek and Roman times, the interest was moved further west, particularly to Hersonissos until the Byzantine years, when Nikiforos Fokas, settled a port functioning at Dermatas bay in Heraklion.

It was the Venetians who moved the Heraklion port where it is today managing by this to take advantage of a line of underwater rocks. They constructed the Venetian port which was at the time a really big port very well-built and protected, with plenty docking facilities, service, resupply and repair possibilities. The Venetian port is operating up until today hosting the fisher boat harbor and the yacht’s marina. The castle built at its edge (Koules castle) is one of the most important landmarks and symbols of the city. The citizens of Heraklion love promenading along the Venetian port and to enjoy the picturesque landscape.

During the Turkish occupation, there was no extension of the port. With the liberation and the declaration of the Cretan State, the study for the construction of a new port which could cope with the increased demands that development and raise of population has brought, was given to French engineers. This initiative was well supported by the public and the early expenses were covered by contributions donated by the citizens of Heraklion.
