Quick stop with lots to see and admire. Go during the day, and don't miss it at night. There is something simple and magical about being there... Great to walk around!

On our way to "La gran Via" was Plaza de Cibeles, a perfect picture spot, this plaza worth the visit day or night.

Attractive open space when not filledwith traffic where the Calle Alcala crosses the Paseo de Castellaneo. Several attractive buildings and an impressive fountain in the middle with a Celtic like figure i a chariot. You may be pushed tlo get a decent photo of the fountain.

We had a walk around the plaza and were suitably impressed by the fountain as well as the Palacio de Cibeles. Good place for a few photos

For those looking for a picture perfect spot, this is definitely one of the best in Madrid. Palacio de Cibeles, the Town hall, the Bank of Spain and the Fountain of Cibeles are all exquisite buildings that can be found at this beautiful and vibrant crossroads.

A spectacular square with impressive buildings and a fountain. Especially well lit in the evening, so it is worth a visit day and night.

My wife and I arrived at Plaza de Cibeles when we came into Madrid on the Airport Express bus. It is a beautiful plaza with the Cit Hall in the background. Our Airbnb was only three blocks away from the plaza.
