The Firkas Bastion is at the western end of the outer harbour of Chania, Crete. It now houses the Naval Museum. The Venetians used it as a prison for Greeks condemned to death. Eleftherios Venizelos and King Constantine I officially raised the Greek flag here on December 1, 1913.
During the summer months, the Firkas is host to a local Cretan dance group that gives public performances. Plays and concerts are also performed here.
