Its a dome like structure. When you enter Old Town from the mainland gate you will find it to the right side. You may stop to refill your water bottle and sit around the so called attraction to watch things happening around.

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
