Queluz National Palace
Neptune Fountain by Bernini
A truly impressive fountain by one of the masters of sculpture, Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) in the "Neptune Garden" of Queluz National Palace.
The little fish on the helmets/spheres on the balustrade would send jets of water inwards. The lead collar protected the stonework from water.
All this was being restored when we visited in 2007. If you would like to see it for yourself, the Palace is - here -
on Flash Earth.
