“An Elegant Plaza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

Since the Middle Ages, the Plaza de la Constitucion has been the main plaza of Malaga. All the city celebrations are held in this plaza. The buildings around the plaza are quite elegant. The end of the Plaza is decorated with a fountain called the Fuente de Genova, because it came from Genoa in the 16th century, during the time of the Renaissance. The shape of the fountain is a big cup in the shape of a dodecagon. The fountain has three nymphs and has figures of dolphins. Above the bottom cup is another cup that has a figure of Neptune and two other figures. The outer surface of this cup has faces of eight mythical men with water spouts in their mouths. The top cup has figures of boys with dolphins on their shoulders and topped with an eagle. The fountain's design implies that Malaga is a marine city.
