Neptune Fountain - Madrid
Photograph - Photographs
The Neptune Fountain is a white marble neo-classical fountain, and one of the most beautiful in Madrid. It sits in the centre of Plaza de Cánovas del Castillo; better known as Plaza de Neptuno.
The square is surrounded by beautiful aristocratic structures built between the eighteenth and nineteenth century, including the Ritz and Palace hotels.
In this ornate fountain is an eighteenth-century 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.
