Onophrian Fountain, Dubrovnik

3.7
Although heavily damaged in a 1667 earthquake, the formerly lavish Onophrian Fountain was modeled by a famous artist from Naples, Onofrio della Cava. Built in 1438, the fountain featured complex ornaments and 16 streams, which you can see today as they flow from the mouths of images along the fountain. Stop by and see why the locals have a special bond with this fountain. You can quench your thirst here, as the water is potable.

  • It is the largest fountain coming from the particular entry. Is a standard meeting point probably all appointments within the walls.

  • Is the larger of the two major public fountains that had the Central pedestrian zone of the old town, and the first that meets someone coming to visit the city by bus (immediately after the walls). It has beautiful fountains around and summer is always around tired tourists and tourists, standing a little to recover from fatigue and heat. Beautiful sight.

  • The symbol of the town? I wonder if in existence. When you get off the pile gate stairs soon may this fountain. The fountain finally meet and the beginning of the journey. Shop gelato is so far away from here, is very crowded, but the staff, very tasty. The volume surprise! You want to go there again! ~.

Where to stay in Dubrovnik

One of Croatia's major tourist destinations, Dubrovnik remains one of the most expensive cities in the country, especially if you wish to stay in the old town at peak season. You can choose from upscale hotel rooms just east of the old town, but for budget-friendly beds you may have to go as far as the outskirts of town. Many locals rent small rooms in their private homes, so look for rental signs in windows or check with the city's tourist office.
