Fountain Fontana Bembo

Cultural Heritage

Heraklion

The Fontana Bembo dominates what is now the Kornaros Square, next to a later Ottoman charity fountain. It was built between 1552 and 1554 by Capetano Gianmatteo Bembo, the first person who managed to bring spring water in the town through an aqueduct.
The entire construction was originally immured into a storage cistern, which was removed in 1938 to make room for the square.
