Plaza de Cibeles, Madrid
(4.3/5 based on 3,400+ reviews on the web)
Visit , named for the neoclassical fountain of Ceres (or Cybele) riding in a chariot pulled by two lions. As the square is a focal point for modern architecture, look for the four large palaces on each corner--the Bank of Spain, the Palacio de Buenavista, the Palacio de Linares and the Palacio de Cibeles. The fountain is very busy with foot traffic, cars going to the city center, and Real Madrid fans celebrating the victories of their team. Plan your visit to Plaza de Cibeles and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Madrid family vacation planner.

  • Beautiful Fountain! Surely it is in classic style, very similar to ours. It is situated in the middle of the road. Beautiful to see especially at night

  • A corner of the capital that must visit. There is a spectacular view, good photographs are taken. The Bank of Spain, gran Vía... A must visit since the dimensions of the area and the open space for people like us to leave you speechless.
