One of the most recognisable landmarks in Madrid, is the 18th century, 8 metre tall ‘Fountain of Cybele’, which stands in front of Cybele Palace, the city’s town hall. The fountains depicts Cybele the Roman goddess of fertility, riding a chariot pulled by two lions. In her hand she holds a sceptre and a key to the city.
The Cybele fountain has become the location for celebrations after important victories for the Real Madrid football club, when the team’s flag is usually draped around the statue.
