Next stop at Lions Square (Fontana Morosini) located in the heart of the city center.
It was built by the Venetians to solve the city’s water problem providing 1,000 barrels of water per day transporting them to the city center from Mount Juchtas, 15 kilometers away. It is still considered as an amazing achievement for this season.
Opposite the Morosini Fountain is the Basilica of St. Mark, a monument built by the Venetians to honor the patron saint of Venice, St. Mark. Today it houses the Municipal Gallery and is open to the public almost every day, all day long. The square is the busiest part of the city and a very popular place for every visitor to try traditional bougatsa or cheese pie.
Try a Greek coffee in one of the many cafes in the square and let the flavors travel you back in time.
