Weekend in Madrid

Plaza De Ceblis and Surrounding Areas
Statue of the Godess of Cybelles

One of the most unforgettable sights in Madrid is the Plaza De Ceblis . This is one image of Madrid that remains in the mind. It is that of the square where the Goddess Cybelle ( Rhea for the Greeks) sits majestically on a chariot drawn by a pair of Lions. The Goddess Cybelle is a symbol of Madrid as well as a symbol of Real Madrid for the fans. This square was built by Ventura Rodriguez during the reign of Charles III.
