The Fountana fountain in the capital of Naxos

In the town of Naxos stands the structure of an impressive fountain house, the so-called Fountana , dating from the Venetian period. It consists of a square building, formed by four arcs, in the middle of which stands the well . The fountain house includes an overflow system for the exit and drain of water  . The roof that the four arcs once supported is not preserved.
