Gyali Tzami commands the Old Port of Chania. Dedicated to the first Turkish military commander of the city, Küçük Hasan, it’s the first-ever mosque built in Crete immediately after the conquest of the city by the Ottomans and operated as Muslim temple until 1923. From then on, the building was consecutively used as Archaeological Museum, warehouse, folk art museum, while today hosts various events and exhibitions. Do not miss on a chance to visit it during your stay at Chania, especially if there is an art exhibition running.
