Heraklion  is the largest urban centre in Crete, capital of the region Heraklio and the economic centre of the island. The first European civilisation, the Minoan civilisation, flourished on this land  5000 years ago. The conquering of Constantinople by the Franks in 1204,  left Crete under the sovereignty of the Venetians until 1669. During this period,  Heraklion experienced significant cultural growth and became the capital of the ' 'Regno di Candia''. However, all this cultural and spiritual growth came to a sudden end in 1669 with the invasion of Crete by the Turks.
