Many of Chania's buildings date from the 14th to the 19th centuries when Crete was under Venetian and Ottoman rule. The Minoan Palace of Knossos, mythical home of matriarchal culture and the Minotaur in the Labyrinth, is only 2 hours away. Chania still has many traditional artisans, specializing in handmade rugs, leather goods, and gold and silver jewelry.
