The prefecture of Chania is found at the western utmost of the island and is particularly affluent with natural beauties, historical and cultural memories from the distant antiquity up to today. The father of epic poetry reports to Kydones and to Kydonia, as one of the most ancient populations of Crete. The archaeological hoe in the past few years exposes important work of the Minoan Culture in Kasteli, Maleme and in three small villages of Apokoronas: Stilos, Samona and Filaki. 
The archaeological Museum of Chania, which is accommodated with in a reconstructed venetian temple of St. Fragiskos, its filled with marvelous work from the ancient residents of Chania since the 3rd millennium b.C.
