Walking away from Cibeles Square and towards the Atocha-Renfe station, you'll see another sculpture in a fountain. This one is called Fuente de Neptuno (Neptune Fountain) and portrays Neptune, the god of the sea, standing on a chariot pulled by horses and surrounded by dolphins. He has a trident on one hand and a snake entangled on the other arm. This fountain is the place where Atlético de Madrid fans and football players meet to celebrate their victories.

Beware of the pickpockets in this area.

Address: Paseo del Prado
Directions: Close to the Ritz hotel and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museum.
