Cibeles fountain

The fountain represents the mother goddess Cibeles, identified in the Greek pantheon with Rhea, mother of the Olympian gods and symbol of the earth and fecundity, on a chariot drawn by lions (Atalanta and Hippomenes).



Surrounded by the buildings of the Buenavista Palace (Army General Headquarters), Linares Palace (Casa de América), the Communications Palace (formerly the post office and currently the City Hall of Madrid) and the Bank of Spain. The goddess and the lions were carved in marble from the town of Montesclaros (Toledo) and the rest in stone from Redueña, a town located 53 kilometers north of Madrid, near the Sierra de la Cabrera.
