After walking a couple of minutes from Barrio de la Villa, I turned up at this beautiful square. It is very clean and quite. The fountain is amazing, specially if all fountain's streams are working. You can take one or two good pictures of it. Moreover, there is another fountain where water emerges from the underground. It is a good... More

It has 139 gushing spouts, each with different carved faces, spilling into 3 pools with Neptune in the centre. Quite delightful! The water is clear and potable. Definitely worth visiting.

We only saw it at night, but nicely lit. Looked like they were landscaping the area around it when we were there.

Walk up the Calle Rio and check out the street side mansions on the way my wife loved the beautiful doors and balconies.

This is a wonderful place to walk to after dinner and cool off. The fountains flow into other fountains, and the fountain lights just glow against the statues and sculptures. It's easy to sit along the fountain (lots of benches) and enjoy the atmosphere.

With the free maps at torist info centre in the main square, its possible to amble around all the sights in one day but the churches have limited opening hours. The fountains are a delight and are just a 10 minute amble from the square. Worth a visit

Very calm and peaceful - Spectacular 16th century fountain. Even in March withouth the leaves on the tress, it is a wonderful place to just sit and relax. Just beyond the square you can walk to the Ermita del Cavario from where there are great views of the town.
