The Venetian Shipyards at Heraklion

Cultural Heritage

Heraklion

The Venetians built a series of small shipyards (dockyards) (known in Greek as ‘tarsanades’ or more commonly the ‘Neoria’) in the south and eastern section of the port land zone, for the protection and accommodation of various activities related to the operation of the Venetian port. Their size is impressive, and they were used both to repair and build galleon ships.
