Renaissance buildings, Venetian architecture, and an important monument the Clodio villa, which used to be a mansion and the summer residence of the noble Venetian family. There are two Byzantine churches on the outskirts. One is of Virgin Mary with wall paintings from the 11th and 14th century, the other of Saint Eftihios, one of the oldest on Crete.
