Spain – City and Rural Landscape

MADRID, SPAIN

Desde Madrid al Cielo.  Yes indeed.  Madrid is a great city.  In this beautiful fountain of mythological motif,  you can see Neptune riding the waves as he is being pulled forward by wild-looking horses. It’s called the Fountain of Neptune. The focus here is the Paseo del Prado which is part of La Castellana. La Castellana runs through Madrid and meets with major streets like Calle Alcalá.
