“Morosini Fountain:(The so called Lion's fountain).One of the most known fountains of Heraklion,point of reference for its inhabitants but also for the visitors.Today it is one of the most beautiful monuments of the city.The «General Provisioner» Francesco Morosini made it in 1628 who within a complicated for that period system of pipes he managed to bring water from the Archanes' springs to the thirsty town of Heraklion.The eight-lobe cistern which is based on a special stand,is decorated with embossed mythological depictions and maritime figures like tritons, dolphins and various coats of arms while the water was flowing from the mouths of four lions.At the very top of the fountain there was a supernatural statue of Poseidon that was standing out but fell probably due to an earthquake. During the Turkish period the fountain went into a vulgar modulation with the addition of a baldachin(ciborium) around it which was later taken away.Morosini,on the occasion of the inauguration coined a special medal with his figure from one side ”

“My favorite bar in heraklion! It is a tiny bar with stone walls and a lot of character. It can satisfy any rock and metal music lover as every night it plays something different, it often also has has event night focused on some of the more obscure gernes.”
