This site won't take long but it is significant. This was a symbol of ancient technology and prowess. The main entry to the city was used to impress and well as give fresh water to the citizens. This was a meeting place for many many generations. Nicely shaped this will be a photo point and place to refill your water bottles.

Around the fountain is the entrance to the walls, the Franciscan medicine museum, a church, and eateries.

Ok... You have never seen an old Venetian fountain? This is not the most usual style of a Venetian fountain, but it worths a photo! Then, procede to Plaka, where you'll find more stuff to see!

Nice and obvious location to meet. Also a good place to fill up on water before hiking the baking walls.

It's a stretch to call this a fountain. A wee trickle of water at best. Interesting architecture but there are a lot nicer places to see in this beautiful city

this is a very ornate and pretty fountain situated just inside the city walls, where a cool drink can be imbibed from the many spouts
