Fuente de Neptuno, Madrid

(4.3/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • The fountain of Neptune, is immediately before a La Cibeles fountain, in sense Colon. This source is the meeting place of the amateur athletics for their celebrations. In suentorno congregate the Congress of Deputies, the Ritz hotel, emblematic in Madrid and the no less famous Palace hotel as well as the Thyssen Museum.

  • Nice and Central, surrounded by cool to see things. Close to the career of Jerome can you where continue the route by visiting the cuckoo clock which is in number 26 of that same street and courts building. You can also go and have a look by the Palace to take a super fabulous bar brunch. In front you can see Rithz, one of the emblematic hotels of the capital, or you can take a walk along the beautiful Boulevard of Paseo del Prado

  • I love squares of Madrid avenues, having beautiful addition as in this case, sculptures and fountains that happy view of the transient. The fountain of Neptune is located in a strategic location, close to Atocha, the Prado Museum train station and to the Reina Sofia Museum and other places of tourist interest.
