After successive transformations since the sixteenth century, it was finished building at the beginning of the 19th century. Designed in Baroque style by Remigio del Mármol, its completion is dated in 1803.
It is conceived with three ponds of different levels and elongated shape in which the curved contours predominate. In the first pond is the sculpture of a lion fighting with a snake, a work attributed to the neoclassical sculptor Álvarez Cubero.
In the second, made by Remigio del Mármol, the central figure of the monument, a sculpture of Neptune and Anfítrite that ride on a chariot drawn by horses that come out of the water. From this, the water falls to the last pond by a waterfall, and ends up by the mask of the Clergy.
In the fountain there are 139 pipes, many of them with stone masks with phantasmagorical faces. Declared National Monument .
