From Venetian research only, not personal experience, there are several sites dating from the Turkish Siege of Venetian Candia, 1648-1669.

Fortresses: Grambusa (Granvousa), Souda, Spinalonga.

Towns: Heraklion (Iraklion), La Canea (Xania), Rettimo (Rethimno), Castelfranco (Frangocastelo), Sittia, Paleocastro.

There are some beautiful models of Cretan fortresses, some showing galley halls in the Venice Maritime Museum.
