If you stay in chernosisos, you will walk past this fountain every day without noticing it. I first thought it was bike parking or something. Looks like nothing to be honest

We very nearly missed it. If I hadn’t have looked up some monuments to find beforehand we would have walked straight by it. It’s a bit run down and not looked after too good but still, when you look closely you can see how wonderful...More

Unless you know beforehand, you could easily mistake this as a neglected modern item, not a piece of history. Never running, no signage to explain its history .... very sad.
