Fountain of Marek Pasha
Ottoman Fountain

 This marble building was built by Marek Pascha in 1768.
 Considering the position of water taps are very low, it must have been used by the people who came to collect water, or by the muslims who had to wash their feet before the prayer.
 The style reflects the Constantinopolitan Baroque (1730-1808).

Turkish Fountain
It seems some part of the relief used to be coloured.
