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.

We passed this as we explored the city and couldn't find any signage nearby in English so didn't know what it was until I did some research. It's an interesting building and was a source of water in days gone by. You're bound to see it while wandering around town.

When you passed 1866 street from Morosinis fountain throught bazaar you will entire to square with two different sight from two different cultures but both of them serve to same purpose - to give the people water. Small building with roof was turkish pumphouse and right next to the left was Venetian fountain from another famous venetian noble Pietro Bembo.

This is an Ottoman monument, not Turkish. It was built during the Ottoman period by a Turk citizen of the city. It was a philanthropic place, as it was serving free water to the people. Now, it is renovated, but the cafeneio(a coffee shop since early 20th century) because of the archaeologists who always create problems in our country remains closed. I hope it will be in use again as it is very important point of the old city and a very old and traditional cafeneio (coffee shop).
