Plaza de Cibeles, the busy roundabout connecting Paseo del Prado with Calle de Alcalá and Paseo de Recoletos, is home to some of Madrid's famous monumental edifices. Among them are el Palacio de Comunicaciones, the most lavishly decorated early 20th century post office that is more befitting of a royal palace, and Banco de España, the country's Central Bank. In the the centre of the roundabout is Madrid's famous Fountain of Cybele.

Address: Where Calle de Alcalá crosses Paseo del Prado
