The Venetian Shipyard (also known as the Venetian Arsenal) are ruins of an old shipyard in the bay of Gouvia
, next to the marina. The site is available to public and entrance is free.
As suggested, the shipyard was built by the Venetians in the beginning of 18 century and used for construction and repairs of watercraft. Today visitors can see the fully preserved columns and arches of its solid building but the roof is missing. Some areas inside the shipyard are a bit overgrown with grass but the main passages are clean and accessible.
From the Venetian Arsenal you can see the entire bay of Gouvia, with Kommeno
peninsula and the Ipapandi church.
