Cybele Sq - Plaza de Cibeles, Madrid, Spain
The Cybele Sq is one of the representative squares of Madrid. The statue of goddess Cybele occupies the centre of the square. The goddess of agriculture and fertility stands on a chariot drawn by lions. The statue was erected in 1782 as part of the Salon de Prado project. Water carriers filled their bottles in the fountain while the main pool was used to provide water for horses to drink. Elegant palaces were built on all four corners of the square.
