A good representation of the ingenuity of the Spaniards. Too trafficky to really be able to appreciate it up close, but wonderful to look at.

This is worth seeing by day and night. At the Tarascas Fountain end, there's a small park and a nice little terrace bar where you can enjoy a beer in the afternoon sun.
