Butrint Things to Do: 84 reviews and 158 photos
This picture shows one of several nymphaea, or fountains, of the late Roman period. They were fed from cisterns which were, in turn, fed by the aqueduct that passed along the line of the ancient city wall. There would probably have been water outlets in the niches visible in the photo, which may also have contained statues.
