The Venetian Water Fountain

  Trg fra Andrije Kačića-Miošića, Makarska     more than a year ago
A spectacular stone structure in front of St Mark’s Church featuring three lions’ heads spouting water from their mouths. As you might guess from the big cat motif, the fountain dates from the time when the Venetians occupied this coast - the period in history mainly responsible for the romantic Baroque appearance of the older parts of Makarska. The fountain was built in 1775 as a public water fountain – this is where people came to get their supplies for daily use in their homes, and indulge in a little juicy gossip along the way. Today the splash of the water refreshes the square on the hottest summer day.
