Very interesting

It is modern and interesting. In a small town, you will find this interesting art piece. Mixed feelings on the location, but impressive.

This fountain in the Plaza del Pilar is huge and represents all the continents. Seen best from above, it is quite spectacular.

I personally quite like this fountain. It certainly is modern in design and I liked that it looks like a crack in the earth. The water flows over the block into pools that look like more cracks in the earth. One thing that would have been nice was an overview of what it represents. I got the feeling the design... More

In 1991 Plaza de Pillar was rejuvenated and Fuente de la Hispanidad was born, the fountain is a dedication to all Latin American countries. Unfortunately the fountain had no wow power, the water was just trickling, maybe due to the time of year, April. The fountain cannot be missed located at the far end of the plaza, opposite end to...

This is in the main square and so really you can't miss it. However, it is a little strange and doesn't fit in with the beauty of the rest of the square. However, I am sure that for some, it has it's own charms - but i would prefer a more traditional fountain in this setting.

Yes, there's a fine idea but in my opinion this modern fountain does not fit well in Plaza del Pilar. And it's even worse when looking from Plaza Cesar Augusto (there's an entrance to the public toilets). To get a complete view you need to look from basilica's tower.

I understand the objective of the fountain, to display the Hispanic presence in the Americas, but the result is a massive clump of stone and water that doesn't dazzle. It does anchor the end of the huge plaza, and draws you to it from afar, but the result is disappointing.

As I said in the title It's just a pretty fountain. It has an interesting concept of representing South America which you can see, it was a pleasant experience but not a highlight!

The Fuente de la Hispanidad is a modern type of fountain. The map is supposed to represent South America and Central America.

Honestly I spend quite long time trying to understand HOW does contour of the fountain remind Latin America... I walked around this place over and over again! But when finally I realised that not only upper part the water flows from should be concidered, but the fountain's bowls as well it all came to me! Of course! The grey rock... More
