About Chania center and ancient Kydonia
The city has the typical Mediterranean climate, which is hot and dry in summers and mild in winters. The sky is clear between April and October. The atmosphere is almost always warm and hot episodes (with temperatures above 38 ° C) are not very common, as there is a constant sea breeze (the “Meltemia”). It usually snows only in the mountains of the prefecture with very rare exceptions, such as the one on February 13, 2004 where 250–760 mm of snow fell in the city. Some small hot episodes also occur in March and April, when dust from the Sahara is carried by a strong “downhill” wind (Siroko type), which is called Libas (because it comes from Libya).
The highest temperature ever recorded was 42.5 ° C, while the lowest was (February 17, 2021) -2 ° C in the morning.
Chania is the location according to which the Minoans built “Kydonia”. From excavations carried out in various neighborhoods, such as the one in Kastelli, it became known that the area has been inhabited since the Neolithic era. The city was after the Minoan era an important city-state with borders from the sea to the foot of the White Mountains. The first colonists from mainland Greece were the Dorians around 1100 BC. Kydonia was in constant conflict with other city-states in the region, such as Aptera, Falassarna and Polyrreneia. Homer also mentioned it in the Odyssey. In 69 BC. The Roman consul Caecilius Metellus conquered Cydonia, which received the privileges of an independent city-state from the Romans, where it retained the right to have its own currency until the 3rd century AD.
