  Venetian Gate
by steventilly

There's really not much left to see of this, but it's the only remaining Venetian gate into the city. The others have been dismantled over time to give improved access to the city. Just beyond the gate are a number of shops selling fruit, veg, fish, bread etc. from open frontages. It gives the area an air of a market square and in addition there are other good gift and craft shops around this area.
If you go back (turn 180 degrees from this view) and up to the main road (maybe 80m or so) and turn right, a little way along is "Select", the best cake shop we found in Rethymnon (and maybe Crete).
