Plaza de Cibeles
Located in the center of the city, at the junction between Paseo del Prado and Calle Alcalá, Cibeles Square is one of the most representative spaces in Madrid. The square is presided over by a beautiful fountain and flanked by imposing and representative buildings built between the end of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century.
The Fountain of Cibeles
Designed by the architect Ventura Rodríguez in 1782, the fountain depicts the goddess Cibeles on a car pulled by lions. In its beginnings, the source fulfilled its mission of supplying water to the people of Madrid. In 1895 it was transferred to the center of the square and became a decorative element.
In addition to being one of the most representative monuments of Madrid, the Fuente de Cibeles has long been the venue for Real Madrid victories. It is also the place chosen for other sports celebrations, such as those of the Spanish Selection of soccer and basketball.
