    Let's say that the square is nice and well maintained, very busy too, and that's when you'll be in Madrid we will spend almost mandatory as it is located very close to all the major museums. For the rest, aside from the beautiful central fountain, nothing that If this review did you like, you can read my other reviews of Madrid (and others) and I'm glad a click on: is it useful? Thanks:)

    The Neptune fountain in Madrid occupies the center of the plaza de Cánovas del Castillo, the work was designed by Ventura Rodriguez and sculpted by Juan Pascual de Mena, the work is made of white marble. The sculpture represents the God Neptune, God of the seas, which twined snake on his right hand and a Trident in her left hand placed on a chariot formed by a shell and is pulled by two sea horses with fish tail.

    This place has nothing extraordinary except its fountain which throne in the middle of the round point of the place. It is unfortunately hard to admire this pretty fountain close because of road traffic.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
