Neoclassical fountain crowned by the figure of Hercules, naked, leaning on a stick and the skin of the Lion of Nemea in his left arm. On the pedestal is an oval medallion with the portrait of Charles IV and his wife Maria Luisa. The pedestal is flanked by two lions and everything is set on a plinth with steps in the middle of a circular pond.


The fountain is made to commemorate the visit of King Charles IV and for his wedding with Maria Luisa of Bourbon-Parma. In 1929 replaced to the present location.
