Fuente de Neptuno, Madrid

(4.3/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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 is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Madrid Edition.

  • Beautiful fountain near the Prado Museum, is considered a little less alone for the proximity of the Cibeles fountain. Beautiful lighting, beautiful sculpture style.

  • The Fuente de Neptuno is del Prado in the northern part of the city centre of Madrid, on the Paseo in the middle of a busy roundabout. Like at some other places of interest in Madrid it has a here as visitors hard to reach in the immediate vicinity of the well. Unfortunate, because the well is very attractive and worth seeing. A visit is best enables the road well in the deep night, when the traffic crossing a safe.
