O Chafariz das Janelas Verdes encontra-se situado no Largo Dr. José de Figueiredo, na freguesia dos Prazeres em Lisboa e fazia parte do conjunto de chafarizes ligados ao Aqueduto das Águas Livres. Foi edificado no ano de 1755 baseado no projecto do arquitecto Reinaldo Manuel dos Santos, tendo sido utilizado na sua construção mármore rosa e branco.

Este chafariz de arquitectura barroca, apresenta diversas estátuas, esculpidas por António Machado. A bacia e a escadaria envolvente, apresentam uma planta circular. No meio da bacia, ergue-se uma urna de quatro faces que serve de suporte a uma estátua de Vénus e Adónis com um golfinho.

O seu nome está relacionado com o facto de estar localizado junto ao Museu das Janelas Verdes. (wikipedia)
