The Neptune Fountain is a monumental fountain located on the Santa Lucía hill, in the Chilean commune of Santiago Centro, dedicated to the Roman god of the seas, Neptune. It was built between 1897 and 1903 as the main decoration of the entrance to the hill from the Alameda, as part of the city's beautification works. Years later it was placed in the current location during the first century of independent Chile, differentiating itself in the architectural style of colonial Chile. ©Istock/Bkamprath
