One of Madrid's most famous landmarks, Cibeles Fountain represents the Greek goddess, Cybele, who is portrayed sitting atop a lion-drawn carriage.
The fountain water, which is now purely decorative, once supplied water to the city of Madrid. Being the most iconic symbol of the city, Real Madrid and the country's national basketball and football teams celebrate their victories here.
The Gran Via, on the other hand, is Madrid's hustling and bustling component, with no dearth of exciting and interesting things to see and do at the venue. Events are a regular feature here, which is why it's also called Madrid's Broadway.Places nearby:
