You are bound to come cross this fountain while strolling through the agora /market. it is a Venetian / Ottoman fountain. Unfortunately, like most of Crete's sight seeing's, there is no signage or indication giving any historical facts or information. This really a pity as...More

Interesting sight remembering the hard work and awareness of the importance of Crete and Iraklio for Venetians in Mediteranean sea. Giving more comfort to people in town and show their noble status. Curiosity is that survive together with turkish pump right next to right side.

This fountain was built in 1552 and along with it an aqueduct to bring fresh water to the town. People would collect water here, meet and mingle at the markets. It's located at the end of 25th August Street, which is the main shopping street...More

We come from the big city and like to be on the vacation also, close to some places where we can meet a native culture and habits. Do not miss the fountains in Heraklion.

We have walked through a shopping market and then this beautiful fountain appeared like from nowhere. You can easily just past it without noticing which would be a big shame. It is a small 'attraction' but looks nice and you can take a beautiful picture...More

Nothing special, just an old fountain. Found this place easily. I think it was somewhere around the market.

The site, along with the Turkish Pump House, is under construction. The whole area where you would normally stand is blocked off, so far back that you cannot really see the Fountain. I'm sure it is much prettier and more impressive up close but on...More

The fountain is inaccessible owing to public works that will be completed who knows when. Good luck viewing it, even from a distance.

A lovely fountain, but difficult to find as it is located in the middle of a very busy cafe. Although the fountain is in a public area it is difficult to see through the crowd of people.
