“Interesting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Not a 'site' as such but still worth looking at. You can hardly miss it as its right inside the city walls but if you're feeling patched it provides drinking water and the steps around it are good to perch on while you decide where to go next.

“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?!
