All reviews meeting point bougatsa lions square surrounded by restaurants focal point pedestrian area nice square centre of town heraklion city landmark beggars francesco aqueduct governor venizelou tavernas reminder
Definitely worth seeking out these lions....reviewers say easy to find.....we were obviously looking in the wrong place!! Take plenty of photos as they actually look more photogenic than they first appear.
Central to the square is the four lion fountain. The square is officially “Eleftheriou Venizelou Square” (after a Greek prime minister) but known as Lions Square / Fountain.
It’s a small feature in the middle of a densely populated restaurant & café square.
Okay by now you have read the other reviews and wonder why you come here.
Well it’s the Bougatsa ! Watch Anthony Bourdain ( yes he went to Chania, and they have a crunchy version) but none the less it’s awesome here.
