Heraklion is the largest city in Crete and its capital. It is a beautiful metropolis, and constitutes the economic, commercial and scientific center of the island. It also holds a strategic geopolitical position in the Mediterranean, linking three continents and many different cultures.

Archaeological finds, which come to light, unquestionably indicate the decisive role of the city over the centuries. In the past Heraklion had received various names such as Castro, Handakas, and Candia.
