This famous and picturistic fountain is in the quaint mountain village of Spili, Crete in the heart of the city. It seems to be more of a tourist attraction but is a wonderful site to see. Spili is a mountain village that is located about 30 km south of Rethymnon. It is a small village of about 700 inhabitants and an easy visit along the road to Agia Galini on the south coast. The name Spili is derived from ‘spileon’ meaning ‘cave’ because of a cave that is nearby the village. We found Spili a delightful place to visit.
