Lindos Fountain

It is in the Lindos country, which is one of the most touristic places on the island. During the last years of the Ottoman period it had been a sub district, and a primary school and a mosque was present. There had been some additions and buildings to the Castle. Today, only the fountain which is in the entrance of Lindos is active. Besides, there are some rocks from the Muslim Cemetery. It is understood that the fountain was built in 1660-61. However, it is not written who had built it. The fountain which is adjacent to the wall had been renewed many times, so it has lost its originality. The fountain is still used, but the water is not drinkable.
