Visit , named for the neoclassical fountain of Ceres (or Cybele) riding in a chariot pulled by two lions. As the square is a focal point for modern architecture, look for the four large palaces on each corner--the Bank of Spain, the Palacio de Buenavista, the Palacio de Linares and the Palacio de Cibeles. The fountain is very busy with foot traffic, cars going to the city center, and Real Madrid fans celebrating the victories of their team. Put Plaza de Cibeles and other Madrid attractions into our Madrid online travel planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • In addition to expensive, although it 'degrades' the entrance (the cheapest is a third of beer, which was also hot because the fridge does not give for more), the quality is poor and the service as well. The City Council of Madrid would have to keep a closer eye on the companies to which it grants the catering service because the image it gives is very bad for everyone, and this city does not deserve it.
