Have a look by all means, but nothing spectacular. It's handy to use as a reference point when negotiating the market and eateries.

Attractive fountain in a busy square at the top of the Main Street and near the market. Great place to pause for food and drink

We visited this place at night and in the morning - lots of people eating out in the surrounding cafes, taking pictures. A nice place to come and enjoy life

Beautiful, historic fountain. The square around it is ideal for grabbing a cafe table and relaxing. Great vibe around the Lion’s Fountain. Lots of shopping and food around.

Lovely historical fountain situated near the end of the markets. Wind your way up the street and then rest your feet at a little cafe , purchase an Ouzo with free nibbles( usually) and watch the world go by. Its fun to watch the birds...More

Nothing wrong with the town but coming from Rhodes, this town lacks the wow factor. My tip is to tour the walls and get out of the tourist area.
