The Turkisch Pumphouse is situated next to the Bembo fountain. Both are very nice but not a single tourist. Definitley worth a visit when you are in Heraklion.

Lovely old building but suffers from an understated setting. It’s just kind of there at the top of the market street in the old town. I wouldn’t make a special visit but it generally forms a part of the recommended walks through the old town.

It's a nice place, nearby a local basar. In the surroundings there are many restaurants, shops and other activities to do. If you are visiting Heraklion's center is a good place to start.

There is little to say what it was so I found that info on here! Old and historic, attracting many photographs, but not mine. Unattractive building at the end of a cheap shopping street.

The history of this pump house goes back a long. It clearly was va massive undertaking. It is typical of many similar buildings in the Eastern Mediterranean such as you find in Athens and Istanbul.

On the other hand, I just thought to myself the café might have been permanently closed as well.
