A small fountain in the wall that did not look 400 years old

The fountain was difficult to find, because not many local people knew about it :-) Looked very picturesque, although the wall of the fountain did look very untidy

It is surrounded by small cafes and tavernas and you may miss it if you don't pay attention. It's not sth huge, but it's beautiful.

The historic fountain is right in the middle of the old town. Thousands of people walk right by it and never really know or appreciate what it is. Take a good look and read its story. The water is refreshing. Don't be shy, dunk your head or take a drink to cool off.

This is an example of something we enjoy finding as we are walking around a town. We found it on our walk to dinner and took some pictures and thought was an interesting fountain to have to give a town character. Its more a complement to Reythemnon being a nice town to walk around and have dinner and find activities.... More

The fountains of Rimondi are a beautiful spot in the old town of Rethymnon, where you can go and spill water to your face in hot days of summer or drink some. Also nearby there are traditional cafes, where you can have a coffee or snack with your friends or family.

The fountain is not a striking monument but of course does have local significant history. It is sited in a very busy part of the old town with numerous eateries and shops nearby. Immediately adjacent is the Café bar Galeri which serves all manner of drinks etc. and is in a perfect place to just laze away and people watch.... More

It's a fountain. There is water coming out of the mouths of three lions. Guess you will like it if you are into fountains.

The well is boring and a bit lousy to look at, many tourists stand up to be photographed there, though there are many better places in the city, showing the history and culture
