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.
