Fuente de Neptuno is an iconic marble fountain representing Neptune, god of the sea, holding a trident and coiled snake. Walk around the fountain and view the water spouting from the dolphins and other sea animals pulling his chariot, and appreciate the architecture and culture surrounding the sculpture. Finished in 1786, this statue has been used for several political demonstrations, and is also where the victories of Atlético de Madrid Football Club are celebrated. Tip: You don’t need to worry about catching the statue before sunset; some visitors even prefer the lighting of the fountain after dark.

Fuente de Neptuno Reviews
Wonderful fountain. It locates in a very popular place. No way to miss it.
This is a main place. If you came here you could walk the area. There are museums and good restaurants. Also on summer in in the parks there are activities. Anyway this place is a good stop to take a photo and keep going traveling.
