Comments:
The 16th-century building was a Venetian-era Arsenal, and is the last of 17 buildings in the port. Its construction began in 1585 and was completed in 1600. During the Ottoman period in 1872 a floor was added to it. The building was badly damaged during World War II and was rebuilt in 2002.
