Photographer's Note

Click here to see the large version in the old (beta) site.

This is a panoramic view of the old harbour of Iraklion. On the left we can see the Venetian fortress, known locally as Koules (from the Turkish "Kule"; tower or fort), a common name to old fortresses in Crete, and called Rocca al Mare ("Fortress on the Sea") by the Venetians. The new port lies close to the yellow building on the center, where we can see a big ferry. If I am not wrong, on the right we can see the port Venetian warehouses or shipyards.

The image is a stitch of 4 vertical shots.
