Seville Light Fountain

This fountain is maintained by City of Fountains Foundation.


A triangular traffic island at a busy intersection on the Plaza is the setting for this ornate fountain. Sculptor Bernhard Zuckerman was commissioned to create an exact replica of the Plaza de Los Reyes fountain in Seville, Spain. The central shaft is 30' tall and carved from several kinds of marble. Intricate iron details top the tall fountain. Water flows from the four masked faces located near its 20' square base.
