The Loggia


North-East view of the LoggiaThe Venetian Loggia in Rethymnon was built in the mid-16th century and is located on the corner of Arkadiou street and Paleologou street.  The building has a square layout with three vaulted walls (the south wall of the Loggia is not vaulted).  The vaulted walls consist of three semi-circular arches, the central arch in each wall functioning as an entrance to the building.  Originally, the building was open to the air; however at a later stage a timber roof was constructed.  Restoration work to the Loggia was carried out in the mid 1990s and since then the building has functioned as the Archaeological Museum shop.
