Plaza de Cibeles

The source of Cibeles (better known by Madrid residents as La Cibeles) is a monumental fountain located in the square of the same name, in the center of the Spanish capital.

It was built on the initiative of King Charles III, within an urban planning plan in the eighteenth century. To beautify Madrid with a neoclassical aesthetic. The project included a series of mythological sources such as Neptune, a Museum of Natural Sciences, which at present is the Prado Museum and a Botanical Garden. The source represents the Goddess Cibeles, mother of the olipic gods, and symbol of the Earth and Fertility on a chariot drawn by lions (Atalanta and Hipómenes).

It is one of the icons of the city of Madrid.
