This exquisite Havis Amanda fountain is the centerpiece between Market Square to the east and the entrance to Esplande Park to the west. The statue by Ville Wallgren portrays a mermaid standing on a pedestal of seaweed. Surrounding her on the red granite pool designed by Eliel Saarinen are four sea lions. Take note of the yellow Neoclassical building on the left. Below the clock is a tourist information center. Pohjoisesplanadi 19 was designed by Pehr Granstedt in 1816.
