Plaza de Cibeles
At the center of the Plaza de Cibeles is the Fuente de la Cibeles. This fountain, named after Cibele (or Ceres), Roman goddess of nature, is seen as one of Madrid's most important symbols. The fountain was built between 1777 and 1782 by Ventura Rodriguez. Whenever the local football team Real Madrid wins a cup, fans flock around the fountain to celebrate.
