The Venetian Harbor

The harbor was first constructed between 1320 and 1356 by the Venicians to protect the City. Certain problems were caused to the harbor by the north winds and the silt deposits in the basin from rain waters and sewage. To solve these problems a jetty was built with an opening for the renewal of water. At the entrance to the harbor, there is a light –house, which was rebuilt in the period of the Egyptian occupation as it is seen today.
