Bembo Fountain information
Lonely Planet review
The delightful fountain on Plateia Kornarou, at the southern end of Odos 1866, was cobbled together in the 1550s from antique materials, including a statue of a Roman official found near Ierapetra. The town’s first fountain, it channelled fresh water to Iraklio via an aqueduct running 13km south to Mt Yiouhtas. The adjacent hexagonal building, now a cafe, was originally a pump-house added by the Turks.
