A very impressive and grand fountain. Wonderful sculpture work around the edges.

Kate said...

I, too, wonder about all the carvings. The waterflow seems to vary quite a bit?? Every square or park should have a fountain such as this!

What a fabulous theme - fountains! This one is magnificent with the circle of symbols surrounding the main fountain pool... great focal point and it looks like you captured the second shot at sunrise, or was it sunset.

Love seeing this, JM.

This is a great pairing of photos, worthy of the magnificence of the Jeronimus Monastery, one of our favorite memories of Portugal.
