XL Sheet 50x50 La Cibeles, MADRID
Art print from the Spain Series. The Plaza de Cibeles in Madrid.
It was conceived within an urban remodeling plan in the 18th century, at the initiative of King Charles III, who planned to beautify the capital of the kingdom according to the aesthetics of Neoclassicism. In the center of the square is the fountain that represents the mother goddess Cybele, identified in the Greek pantheon with Rhea, mother of the Olympian gods and symbol of the earth and fertility, on a chariot drawn by lions.
The current square was initially called Plaza de Madrid and in 1900 it took the name Plaza de Castelar. Currently it is delimited by the large buildings of the Buenavista Palace, Linares Palace, Communications Palace and Bank of Spain.
The curious thing is that each of these monuments belongs to a different neighborhood of Madrid.
