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.

  • One of the most emblematic sources of Madrid. You can not miss it. It's beautiful to see it both day and night.

  • Located in the historical part of Madrid, worth discover and admire it from different points, around the square. Photos it seems much larger than it actually is

  • The square is very pretty! Well cared for, have a look amazing, because the garden is well maintained, is around is also quite beautiful. I think it is a must, so it has to go through there.
