This is a landmark in the Old Town. The area is dense with cafes, restaurants, and shops. We arrived by ferry, left our bags at our hotel, and went there for a light breakfast before seeing the city.

A fountain on Eleftheriou Venizelou Square. It dates back to the Venetian times (as some other structures in Heraklion). Four lions support the basin - it's a meeting point for many local people and the square is usually crowdy.

Heraklion is lot bigger than we could ever imagine, it's a big working, industrial city, mostly modern, not much of that typical Greek style streets. The area around Morosini fountain was something that reminded us that this is Greece, and a touristic place. It's lively, colorful and with a few historical places around the place, nice old strees with nice bars, tavernas. Those photos of the fountain are the rare ones we took that resemble a city that's different than any other, even the old town of Heraklion is not that "old" looking.

This is a nice fountain and it provided a nice feature to the small square. The area around it is great with very nice cafe's to eat and have coffee with friends and family. This fountain has stood there for hundreds of years having being built by the Venetians and has survived wars and is still a beautiful monument.

If you walk around downtown in the historical district you will find this historic Venetian fountain. It's located in a very busy area with many restaurants and people milling around.

A beautiful Fanta in in the center of old town. No need to look for it, you’ll sooner rather than later walk in front of it. Ver nice work and remarkably preserved.

This famous Venetian Fountain of the Lions is located in one of the busiest areas of Heraklion

The fountain was constructed to bring unlimited drinking water the City. It was opened on 25 April 1628, which is the feast of Saint Mark, patron saint of Venice.

The main feature of the Fountain are the 4 lions spouting water into eight ornately carved troughs.

It all stands in a circular reservoir of water, when we visited, it needed cleaning as there was bits of paper and rubbish floating in it.

Originally the fountain had a statue of Poseidon and his trident, sadly over time it has been removed and eithet lost or destroyed.
