Iconic fountain
May 2021
A beautiful fountain, remains from the Bourbon period in Madrid. It is located between the Prado and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. It is located in the middle of a very busy crossroads, without pedestrian access.

Iconic Fountain from the Bourbon Period 18th Century
Oct 2020
This is a beautiful sculpture/fountain in the heart of Bourbon Madrid. It is very close to the Prado Museum. It is one of the landmarks in the city with the Cibeles. It was designed by Ventura Rodriguez, a famous artist from the 18th century.

In the Middle of Plaza del Neptuno
Sep 2019
It occupies the centre of the Plaza de Cánovas del Castillo, at the beginning of the Paseo del Prado. This is one of the most beautiful marble fountains of Madrid, representing a shell-shaped carriage emerging from a rocky base and pulled by two hippocampi, symbols of storms at sea.

The fountain was very pretty and maintained. Our excursion bus dropped us off here and the hop on and hop off bus picked us up here. There were a couple of restaurants in the area and souvenir shops. Very close to the arts area of Madrid.

A white marble neo-classical fountain
Oct 2019
The Neptune Fountain sits in the centre of Plaza de Cánovas del Castillo; better known as Plaza de Neptuno. You are sure to pass if visiting Madrid's Golden Triangle of Art.
The fountain, built between 1780 and 1784, is a sculpture of Neptune, the god of the sea holding a trident while riding on a carriage pulled by two creatures with a horse-shaped upper-half and a fish serpentine-tail.
Located in the centre of a busy "traffic-circle" it is difficult to approach unless you are in the crowd celebrating a victory by the football club, Atlético Madrid.

Beautiful fountain.
Sep 2019 • Friends
Fuente De Neptuno is in my opinion one of the most beautiful fountains in Madrid, although in the centre of a busy traffic intersection it's still so good to stop and admire.
The fountain shows Neptune, the God of sea,on a chariot being pulled by seahorses, looks absolutely stunning, Neoclassical architecture looks so cool ,we were heading to Plaza De Jesús and it's hard to miss along Padeo Del Prado .
Well worth checking out if your in the area.
