The Fountain of Neptune (Spanish: Fuente de Neptuno) is a neoclassical fountain located in Madrid, Spain. It lies on the centre of the Plaza de Cánovas del Castillo, a roundabout in the Paseo del Prado. The sculptural group in its centre represents Neptune, a Roman water deity.
Designed by Ventura Rodríguez, the sculpture—made of white marble from Montesclaros—was commissioned to Juan Pascual de Mena. Sculptural works began in 1781. Following the master's death in April 1784, the fountain was finished in October 1786 by his disciples.

Dedicated to a greek goodness, this fountain is pretty beautiful, in front of the museum and near to ATOCHA station. During the night, it is more beautiful in my opinion.

How much can you really take in, I love all the layers Madrid has. You can 'see' it in a day but you can spend your whole life trying to "SEE" it.

Emblematic place for most authentic madrid's football club: Atlético de Madrid. It is where they celebrate all major football trophies

Paso obligado por Madrid, si van por El Prado se presta para una foto rápida, aunque los árboles que la rodean no me dejaron admirarla muy bien.

You can't actually acces this fountain due to it being located in the middle of the street, yet it can be admired from several points of view around it, making it accessible for the eye.

A beautiful fountain. My only gripe is not being able to get a close up photo due to the surrounding streets and traffic.
