Photographer's Note

The Ibrahim Han Mosque is placed in the middle of the Venetian Fortezza. The mosque is found next to the Rector's residence and was originally a Venetian cathedral dedicated to Saint Nicholas, built in 1580. However, when Rethymno was occupied by the Turks, in 1646, it was converted into an Ottoman mosque by the Sultan Ibrahim Han and took his name.
The church of Agios Theodoros Trichinas (in the foreground) was built in 1899, by converting the former warehouse.
