Hidden deep within the old city is the beautiful Rimondi Fountain. Water pours from the mouths of three lions framed by ancient Corinthian columns. The fountain dates from the early 15th century.

This fountain once supplied the entire drinking water supply for the city during Venetian times, and today the water is potable, so fill up your water bottle from an ancient source and continue your explorations.

The fountain is set in Platanou square, a shady spot surrounded by shops and an open-air café. The alleyways in behind will eventually lead you to the fortress on the hill above.
