Visited by many people all clamouring to get their photos taken in front of or beside the fountains, those in front tend to block the view of the fountain and if a school party is involved you may have difficulty passing through the crowd. The problem being increased because of the popularity of 2 nearby ice cream sellers

We found the fountain completely by chance... Really beautiful! There's a little information about it. It's on the middle of a busy street next to a couple of restaurants... Be careful of bikes passing you at speed of you want to take a picture! Very beautiful and worth a look if you're walking through old town

When you have seen The Lion Fountain in Spili, this little fountain is not something special. It is a nice little fountain, but it isn't worth a detour.

This fountain gave also the name to streets, wonderful hotels and restaurants. It is a beautiful lion and I like to see it when I am in Rethymno

When walking around the busy streets of the old Retimno, one just has to stop and notice a picturesque fountain- a great Kodak moment!

Must have a few thousand photos taken of it each year - if you find it by accident worth a look but do not waste your time looking for it

I'm he first to admit I'm not particulalry a culture vulture but really, this place is not worth searching out. In fact, we were sitting right by it having a drink at a very nearby establishment and didn't even realise it was there.! It's in the middle of the Old Town so if you're passing, go for it - please... More

A beautiful Venetian fountain in the central part of the old city of Rethymnon . A must stop place for pictures,( usually there are a lot of groups from 15.00 to 17.00 , so it might be a bit busy) . Nice pedestrian streets with a lot of shops near by
