Chania Sailing Club in Moro's Arsenali
Chania

During the Venetian occupation (1204 - 1669), the need for the closer presence of Venetian navy in Crete obliged Venice to construct the "Neoria" (arsenal), a dockyard where the ships would be maintained during the winter. In 1467, Venice ordered the construction of a number of "Neoria", two per city (Chania and Rethymno). The construction of the first two "Neoria" in Chania was completed in 1526. In 1593, sixteen "Neoria" had been constructed. In 1599, the south "Neoria" complex was completed with the construction of the 17th "Neorio". In 1607, at the same time when the northeast rampart was extended, the construction of 5 more "Neoria" at the heart of the port begins, which are commonly known as "the Neoria of Moro", named after the General Intendant who suggested their construction. Two of the five "Neoria" were completed, and walls were also constructed.
