Plaza de Cibeles is undoubtedly the most iconic symbol of the city of Madrid and you guessed it—a must-see! It is located at the intersection of Paseo de Recoletos, Paseo del Prado, and Calle Alcala, which forms the boundary between the 3 districts of Salamanca, Retiro, and Center. The square, dominated by the famous eponymous fountain, is flanked by some of the most representative and imposing buildings of Madrid: Palacio de Cibeles, Palacio de Linares, Palacio de Buena Vista, and the Bank of Spain. Fun fact: The Plaza de Cibeles is not unique. Its twin sister resides in Mexico boasting an exact replica of the Cibeles Fountain located in Madrid. This was a gift from the community of Spanish residents in Mexico as a gesture of friendship between the two countries.
