The Onophrian Fountain sits at one end of Old Town and delivers water that is carried by ancient Roman aqueducts from mountains over 7 miles away. Pretty impressive accomplishment, but all you can see is a pleasant fountain.

There were literally hundreds of tourists meandering around this fountain and taking selfies. Well worth seeing and a great meeting place and central.

Right inside the entrance gate of the Old Walled City. Do a little goggle search before going to learn the history of the fountain. Very interesting. Pretty hard togged a good picture of it, with so many people around it.
