  • The fountain is located at the end of the shopping area, right next to the Turkish bathhouse. He is ehr inconspicuous.

  • Interesting sight remembering the hard work and awareness of the importance of Crete and Iraklio for Venetians in Mediteranean sea. Giving more comfort to people in town and show their noble status. C...  more »
  • Beside the Turkish sempil is the Bembo fountain. It took its name from the Venetian General Intendant Gian Matteo Bembo Crete, who built (1552-1554). Great historical value, since it marks the first time that the city's inhabitants watched the city running water. Of course, after the redevelopment, much of the picturesque is lost along with the trees!

  • The Bembo Fountain in Kornaros square is the oldest fountain to have survived. Here begins also the Municipal Market which ends up to the Morizini Fountain (Four Lions square)
  • The most antique cafeneio of Heraklion closed, no more old people playing backgammon and sipping coffee, bushes cut, pavement covered with marble... WHY? :'(
  • Bembo fountain was built between 1552-1554 next to a church of Jesus Christ the Saviour that is no longer standing.
  • I guess it's okay. Would suggest studying the history behind it and not making it the main focus of the day, not that interesting.
  • Very nicr
