The fountain known as “Fonte Luminosa” in Lisbon was inaugurated in 1943, and is an icon of the city. There are four mermaid statues in the fountain, and each mermaid holds a fish spraying water from its mouth. map

The fountain is beautifully lit at night, providing a stunning display of flowing water, stone and art, which can be appreciated to some extent from this video and the images below. I have added this to my list of places I want to visit.
