It would be impressive enough as just a regular sculpture, but a fountain to boot? And on a more practical note, this is a good meeting spot if you need to arrange one.

Take a few moments to walk around the fountain. There are four horses that even have mist coming out of their nostrils. It's a wonderful anchor opposite the Museum des Beaux Arts.

Stand and watch this fountain for a few minutes. The horses seem to come to life breathing steam into the air. Quite amazing

It’s a wonderful fountain that you should visit in Lyon, it’s worth it to see it at night :) and enjoy the place

The Place des Terreaux is a great meeting place with many bars and cafes. The statue is a must as a photo opportunity.
