The Morosini Fountain is located in Lions Square opposite the Basilica of San Marco, in the center of Heraklion. It is considered one of the most beautiful Venetian monuments of Candia and is preserved in very good condition. The reason for the construction was not aesthetic but the water supply to the city of Heraklion. The water came from the mountain Youchtas to Archanes with an aqueduct of 15 km that reached Heraklion.
