There is a great deal of history in the fountain. It does tend to be a meeting spot or a place to sit and have an ice-cream. The fountain is still functioning and the water is drinkable. Nice cool water on a warm day.

Great place to set as meeting place if part of a group or separated. Hang out at this historical fountain that was bombed but survived. Plenty of ice cream vendors by here to enjoy some cold treats while taking a break from all the walking.

The Onophrian fountain that was bombed in 1991 still stands just near the main entrance to Dubrovnik's Old Town. Now, it serves more as a meeting spot and the location of ice cream sellers than anything else. Note: Like most tap water in Croatia, you can drink the water from the Onophrian Fountain!

This is a monument to meet at rather than to admire but it does have interesting detail and it was rather moving to see how it was damaged during the bombardment of 1991

It is situated between two ice cream sellers, and is somewhere cool to sit when it gets too hot. Also you can fill your water bottles here.

Technically big onofrio's fountain (small onofrio's fountain is at the other end of the Placa by the bell tower), this site is flocked to by locals and tourists looking for hydration (water is totally safe to drink and a must on hot days.
