Fortezza, the Residence of the Rector of Rethymnon
Opposite the mosque is preserved part of the Rector's Residence or Palazzo Publico complex. The Rector was the Venetian Governor of Rethymnon.
This is an exceptionally well-constructed building, once imposing and luxurious, completed in 1581. Today only a small section remains, which may have been used as a prison.
