Fuente de Cibeles


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).
