The Fountain of Cybele (Spanish: Fuente de Cibeles, or simply, La Cibeles) is a neoclassical fountain in Madrid, Spain. It lies on the centre of the Plaza de Cibeles. The sculptural group in its centre represents Cybele, a Phrygian earth and fertility deity. It has become one of the icons of the city.
Designed and commissioned by Ventura Rodríguez in 1780, the sculptural group—made of white marble from Montesclaros— is a work by Francisco Gutiérrez (goddess) and Roberto Michel (the lions).

Just happens to be covered and under construction. Apparently all coming down next month. Nice place to have drinks. Small entry fee but I think I it comes off price of drinks.

Nice square with quite impressive buildings and nice fountain right in the middle of the crossroad. If you have time I suggest to visit the terrace at the seventh floor and the restaurant/bar at the sixth floor of the telecommunications building. There you can enjoy an amazing view and take nice photos (especially at the sunset).

This is a nice spot to visit if you’re in the area. I would recommend to go to the terrace because the view is incredible. I would also recommend to use public transportation or walk to get there because it’s a very congested area and it would be difficult to find parking.

A nice place to be, this where Real Madrid celebrate in the Cibeles fountain. It's one of those iconic Madrid places. The Cobbles palace is now used Madrid City Council.

I like this place very much. The fountains are very beautiful and crowded. However, they look very historical and very well detailed. You need to be very careful for your belongings. Many strange and different people around. The area was very difficult to find.

Great area wonderful buildings ideal for airport bus and metro. Easy walking distance to station for trip to Toledo. Visit Museo Nacional Del Prado free entry for last hour or so.

Beautiful fointain in one of the main parts of the city, the park next to it, makes the weather and the view more pleasant!
