On my visit there was no water flowing, no water in the pool area & a fence around the fountain section! I assume closed for maintenance? There is a shallow pool area that wasn't fenced off though which is very dangerous. Kids or anyone walking along could think the marble ground continue flat, but infact its a dry pool. Be... More

I like that the fountain is next to the cathedral and that you can visit both simultanously. The architecture is very extraordinary and you won't see this kind somewhere else again. So if you visit the Pilar you should also take a look at the fountain of course

It is so nice place and it is so beautiful to see the power of water in the middle of the town. Visitors stops and wants to share those moments with the future by taking photos.

It's a fascinating sculpture with a water feature that offers more than first meets the eye. We spent a lot more time exploring and enjoying this monument than I would have ever have guessed was possible.

Zaragoza is a wonderful walk-about city. The large place in front of the Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar has this amazing waterfall.

Very near Santa Maria del Pilar, this is all one very large relaxing plaza at the heart of the city, along the Ebro river. We spent about an hour and one half walking around this place, and sitting in the sun on stone benches.

Nice fountain in Zaragoza in El Pilar Plaza. Looks like a Glacier and water is melting. At night time with lights, it is even better.

This modern tribute to Christopher Columbus, for me, provided a perfect representation of the impact of Columbus' explorations. The pale blue of the water adds both relief from the heat and beautiful colour to the plaza.
