Beautiful architecture of Plaza de Cibeles has become a symbol of Madrid. Three magnificent boulevards intersect at this plaza, Calle de Alcala, Paseo de Recoletas and famous Paseo del Prado. The fountain named after Cybele, a Phrygian goddess, has become a symbol of Madrid

Cibeles is a big beautiful plaza in the center of Madrid. The fountains are stunning, and on one side of the plaza is the impressive City Hall. Right now, I think the main attraction in the plaza is the large sign hanging on City Hall....More

Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses

Hi, it is called Restaurante Palacio de Cibeles and is located on the 6th floor. There is a beautiful terrace with a view on Madrid. The restaurant is linked with the famous Adolfo Restaurant in Toledo, owned by Adolfo Munoz.
