This is a very beautiful fountain in an important and impressive location however I have never managed to get close to it due to the fact it is in the middle of a very busy road.

Neat fountain but have your telephoto lens handy because to get close to the fountain, you'd have to challenge the crazy Madrid drivers

Nice fountain and statue to see. We were lucky and the road around most of it was closed for the day to cars so we could get up close for pictures. Typically a high traffic roundabout.

Was extremely crowded when we visited, as there was a marathon that weekend that closed off the streets. The work is exquisite with fine details.
