  Las Cibeles
by Frisbeeace

The Cibeles is located in the Paseo de Recoletos and Alcalá street which intersects the fountain from east to west. Cibeles is the name of the Greek goddess of fertility, who is sitting on a charriot pulled by two lions.

At both sides of the fountain two Paseos start: de los Recoletos heading north and del Prado heading south. The fountain of Cibeles is the celebration point for the Real Madrid football fans whenever their team wins a tournament.

On the corners of the plaza de Cibeles there are two outstanding buildings: The Communications Palace and the Bank of Spain. The first one is a stunning building which some people compare to a wedding cake.

Address: Where Alcala street crosses Paseo del Prado
Directions: Metro: Banco de España
