“Impressive Water Tank”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The 16 sided water fountain still supplies fresh drinking water. It is just inside the Pile Gate. It is not a destination or considered a "site". It is just there. And in it's time was built to impress any visitor to the town. At the other end of the Stradun (walking street) is another smaller fountain by the same builder.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Beautiful Fountain! I read some people complaining that it is too bad that you can only see the outside structure but hey people, it's a fountain, I don't know what did you expect to see?!

“Lovely old fountain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Just after the entrance of the Pile gate and opposite the Franciscan Monastery lies this fountain. Very old and very useful still supplying clean drinking water. Nice place to sit and watch the world go by - they sell ice-cream just by it cheaper than further down the street.

“Watch the world go by”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

A great place to watch the world go by. In October the fountain was always in shade, so a welcome relief from the endless sunshine we enjoyed
