Cibeles Square, Madrid: 52 reviews and 84 photos

  Palacio de Comunicaciones

Cibiles Square has the wonderful statue from the 18thC in the middle (its partner - Neptune - is near the Prado). But the background has the most beautiful post office building. Built in the early 20thC it is sometimes called 'Our Lady of the Communications'. To me it has some of the Moorish elements that Spain is strong in.

Address: Where Alcala street crosses Paseo del Prado
Directions: Just walk up the Paseo del Prado

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
