How many things we construct these days will still be functioning as they were designed in 600 years to come? Great meeting place and spot to cool off if a hot day and by all means top up your water bottles with clear clean water and save the plastic. So glad UNESCO have arranged the repair of the dome roof. Love the history.

It was fascinating to hear about the fountain's history and its water source. Located just inside the City Wall it is a great place that is easily found. Therefore it is an ideal meeting point and resting place while waiting for your family or group to catch up before heading away.

Entering through Pile Gate, this is the first you will see, surrounded no doubt by hawkers and visitors from everywhere you care to mention. The fountain is essentially a circular dome surrounded by a circle of water sprouting heads. It was designed by Italian architect Onforio della Cava primarily so that visitors had somewhere to not only drink, but also to wash of dust and grime before entering the city. These days of course it serves more of a meeting point than anything else.

Entering the old town from Pile gate, coming to Stradun, is the first monument which is always crowded. It is hard to get a seat and rest a little or make photo without tourists.

Grand fountain almost 600 yrs old. Water was brought here from 12km away. Fine view of the main street offered before starting the explorations.
