The white marble fountain depicts the Greek goddess of fertility on a chariot pulled by two lions and serves as an iconic symbol of the city. Take a walk around the fountain’s square to marvel at the impressive surrounding buildings including the Cybele Palace, now the site of the city hall, the Bank of Spain, and the Buenavista Palace. Head to the top floor of the Cybele Palace for a meal with views of the skyline and square below.

  • beautiful and majestic sculpture group must be seen from different angles and I suggest to go with a tour guide to fully understand its meaning

  • And an excellent very spacious city point which allows to obtain a very good panoramic view of the whole area

  • I would have liked to have seen the source more closely, but it is basically a roundabout. One day that area of Madrid is closed to pedestrians. For now, the best way to view the font is watching from the Windows of the Gallery CentroCentro.
