One of Europe's most impressive plazas. Every building around this plaza is absolutely gorgeous. Which ever direction you look at its just so impressive. Only in Europe. We can only dream of this in Australia.

Probably the most beautiful roundabout in Madrid with the fountain of the goddess Cybele in the middle. There is also Palacio de Cybele that you can visit too and enjoy the best view of Madrid from the rooftop. Highly recommended!!

The plaza is the area where the beautiful palace and the iconic fountain can be found. It is also the traditional spot where the Real Madrid football fans meet after all major wins.

Beautiful plaza and sculpture on a busy road and focal point of Madrid. The place HEAVES at night time. Luckily has heaps of taxis nearby ... our shuttle didn't show up so it was great to run down here and easily grab a cab.

You get a full 360 degree review of the city from the top of the Cibeles Palace. We went first thing (1030) so didn't have to queue. It's worth finding the spiral staircase before you leave as it's a beautiful old set of stairs with...More

Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses

Hi, it is called Restaurante Palacio de Cibeles and is located on the 6th floor. There is a beautiful terrace with a view on Madrid. The restaurant is linked with the famous Adolfo Restaurant in Toledo, owned by Adolfo Munoz.
