Chapter Square - Salzburg


If you choose to walk to the Fortress or to take the funicular, you will cross Chapter Square, which is not far from the cathedral. In fact, the square itself used to be part of the cathedral abbey. On the square you will find a beautiful marble fountain with Neptune, god of the sea, holding a trident and crown, mounted on a seahorse spurting water. The baroque figure was sculpted by Josef Anton Pfaffinger. Today, the square is quietly bustling, and there are some market stalls, along with giant chess sets for you to relax and play a game.
