The Spring of love or the Fountain of Love is located in westerner utmost part of Cyprus, in the Akamas Peninsula , near Cape Arnaoutis and just next to the blue lagoon. It is a creek with a small spring, which supplied many legends and traditions about lovers and the love. Legend has it that the Goddess Aphrodite used to bring her young lovers here away from people. Another legend says that those who drink from there will fall in love again. Its foreign name is first mentioned during the Venician peririod and is an attribution of a corresponding previous Greek name.
