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.

Located next to the entranceway to Havana's harbour the statue of Neptune, interestingly, faces into the city and not towards the sea. This is a nice area to stroll around.

The statue almost glows in the light of sunrises and sunsets and is also floodlit at night.

One of the things I love about Havana is all of the sculpture, monuments, and statues. Neptune is appropriately situated just by the Bay of Havana. He is a magnificent statement and appears to rule over the sea, just as in mythology.

This magnificent marble statue sits beside Havana Bay very near the entrance. It is almost directly across from the Christ of Havana at the top of the ridge across the water (you can see Cristo de La Habana in the corner behind the statue).
