Rimondi Fountain

Fountain in Rethymno

Our Review

Pride of place among the many vestiges of Venetian rule goes to this fountain with its spouting lion heads and Corinthian capitals, built in 1626 by city rector Alvise Rimondi.

Water spouts from three lions’ heads into three basins flanked by Corinthian columns. Above the central basin you can make out the Rimondi family crest.
