Idomeneus Fountain

Cultural Heritage

Heraklion

This fountain was constructed in the late 17th century during the Ottoman rule. It is located behind the neoclassical building that is part of the Historical Museum of Crete. The fountain has two columns with capitals bearing vegetal motifs. Between them there is a marble slab with relief decorations and a Turkish inscription set in an arched niche. The water flowed from an opening in the lower part of the slab into a marble basin below.
