Its modern times name was given by the Arabs. In 1252, under the Venetian occupation, the town begun its fortification projects, which were finished in 1590. Hania was the first town in Crete occupied by the Turks, in 1654, until it was freed in 1898, when it also became the capital of the by then autonomous island. Today in Hania, the visitor will distinguish the modern from the traditional parts of the town, which includes areas such as the Top Hana or Topana, the Jewish neighbourhood, the Santrivani, the Spalntzia or Plaza, and the Casteli.

The town monuments, its squares and its streets testify to its glorious history.
