There are a great number of fountains scattered around Havana, and many of them have had a variety of resting places, non-more so than Neptune’s Fountain. Originally built in Italy and shipped to Havana in 1836 as a practical fountain to supply ships with fresh drink water. In 1871 it was found to be impractical and moved to a corner on Paseo del Prado then a park in Vedado. It was rediscovered and returned to its original location next to the entranceway to Havana's Harbour, it is odd that the Statue faces the city not the Harbour.
TIP: We found this a great place to sit in the evening as the setting sun rays ran across its white marble shape, with the statue of the Christ of Havana off in the back ground.
