Rimondi is named after the Venetian commander of the town of Rethymno -Alvise Rimondi- who constructed the Rimondi fountain in 1626 in order to partially cover the water demands of the city and today it is worthy of our admiration in a beautiful location in Platanos square in the old Venetian quarter of Rethymno.
Palazzo Rimondi is partially hosted within a building which dates back to the Venetian occupation of Crete (1200 - 1600 AD) and bearing obvious influences from the Renaissance. There followed a series of phases of elaborate construction in the form of building additions during the Turkish occupation, as well as, during the 19th and 20th century.
