The Chania Clock TowerThe clock tower of Dimokratias Street is ideally located on the street that goes North from the Platia Dikastiria. This famous street passes by the beautifully landscaped Public Gardens, which is popularly referred to as the "Kipos" and the imposing tower or "Roloi" as it is called in the local parlance is to the left.

There is also the splendid Chania stadium to the right that culminates at the bustling Market Square.

The clock tower is located on the north-east part of the Municipal Garden. Its construction started in 1924 and ended in 1927. It is structured in three parts: a base, a body (whose sides converge upwards), and a roof in the form of a round pavilion. It was built with boulders from the quarries of Lendariana and Halepa and with river sand. The clock tower was designed by D. Kollaros. On the same corner, next to the clock tower, there is an open summer cinema, founded in 1905. Nowadays, the cinema still functions as the Municipal Cinema, and it has become an integral part of the Municipal Garden.
