Architectural monuments of a later period include Itzedin Castle dating back to the 19th century. The first fortress was built on its site back in the 17th century, later its footing became the foundation for a new castle. The castle was originally used for holding prisoners, and during the tour, visitors can see several preserved prison cells. In the middle of the 20th century, the fortress changed its purpose to become a warehouse. Travelers for whom local attractions are not enough can be recommended to visit the city of Chania located close to Grand Baie.
