Chania Market

"This cross shaped market opened in 1913.

The Agora is one of the most popular places in Chania for most of the week. Since the beginning of the 20th century, this dynamic market has been offering fresh produce and Cretan specialties to locals and tourists alike.

For many years it was an unattractive area on the edge of town filled with fishmonger stalls and shabby taverns. In 1911, the city decided to improve the market place. She was inspired by the market covered Marseille to achieve it. The building, in the shape of a cross, was completed in 1913 and opened to the public.) Source Expé
