Greece in pictures

23rd September, 2013 by Rupert Millar

Heraklion copyMore Cretan history albeit a little later than the late Bronze Age. A fountain in Heraklion displaying signs of Venetian rule which lasted from the 13th to the 17th centuries. The Venetians were awarded overlordship of the island following the collapse of the Fourth Crusade which famously sacked Constantinople and saw many parts of Greece occupied by Frankish rulers. The Venetians were eventually expelled by the Ottoman Turks in 1669. The Ottomans would rule until the final Cretan uprising of the 1860s which led to the establishment of Crete as an independent state in 1898. The church behind to the right, St Mark’s Basilica, is also Venetian and out of sight down the road is another Venetian loggia from the 16th century.
