A modest yet wonderfully classical edifice is beside Loggia in Petichaki square, in the center of Rethymno’s ancient town. During Venetian authority, the Rimondi fountain was created in 1626. It was named for the Venetian ruler of the time, A. Rimondi, and it continuously hurled water from three springs in the shape of lion heads, providing a vital source of water for the residents of the Old Town.
There were antique Greek columns with exquisite tops around the springs. The two surviving tablets real Liberaliatis and Fonte are located between the columns. In the centre of the fountain, a Venetian coat of arms has been erected on top of the lion heads. There are open cafeterias and other Venetian landmarks around the Fountain.
