An unusual sight - five wells in a line at the edge of the old city close to the city walls that overlook a harbour and are close to a small park.

It's a relatively quiet square, with a few wells, a tall tower to one side, and a garden on the other. Good for a couple of photos with the well in the foreground, tower in the background, especially when there's a nice blue sky. Other...More

We were here in low season so able to sit back and appreciate the space, as well as watch people wandering by. Zadar Old Town is so easy to get around that you can include this on any trip.

This square is less busy than the main ones and is more relaxing. The five Wells and the archaeological remains are very interesting to look at and enjoy a drink

One of my favorite squares in the city of Zadar. Something is always happening here in summer time. I love it.

Not a lot to see but worth a few minutes of your time and nice pictures. Remember how old it is. If you like cats,lots hanging around

There is well marked explanation through signs of the significance of all 5 wells which are capped off. Currently part of a playground you will discover the small plaza and surrounding walls are easy to locate in the old city.

These five wells in a lovely plaza were built to provide a city under siege with water to survive, and then someone figured out that the enemy could cut off the water supply at its source. Still nice to have five wells, though.

Until 19C, the five wells at the centre of the square still functioned as the water supply for the town.

Old Square in Zadar. We enjoyed walking through the Old Town and drinking in the atmosphere. Simple place but worth visiting if close by. Wouldn't stay long here, but worth a walk through.
