A creative piece of artwork seen no where else standing in a fantastic plaza with a magnificent Cathedral and in the rear a Roman tower and wall remains.

You are bound to see this when you visit the basilica. There is nothing wrong with the fountain itself. It would be great in the Parque Goya, for example. But, in my view it is an extremely unfortunate monumental intrusion into the beautiful area in...More

It’s a nice piece of art, just unfortunate you cannot see the map from the square, and also unfortunate that the modern artpiece does not really fit with the rest of the square, which is a completely different artstyle.

Lovely by day but lit up and colour changing at night. Definitely worth stopping by to take some photos.

Really ugly fountain at the end of the Pilar Plaza near the Roman wall. Plus anyone not watching carefuly can easily fall into the shallow water. Very ugly and does not contribute anything visually to the beautiful plaza.

This is one of several points of interest in Plaza Pilar. It is interesting during the day, but I suggest you return in the evening when it is illuminated with colored lights.

We visited the fountain as part of a free walking tour with Diego. The fountain is in the main Pilar Plaza and is very impressive. Most people don't know but the water crates the shape of South America as a tribute to Christopher Columbus. You...More
