The Fountain of Cybele (Spanish: Fuente de Cibeles) in Mexico City is a bronze replica of the fountain located in the Plaza de Cibeles in Madrid that was built during the reign of Charles III by architect Ventura Rodríguez between 1777 and 1792. The Mexican version is located at a traffic circle in Plaza Villa de Madrid, where Oaxaca, Durango, Medellín and El Oro streets converge in Colonia Roma.


It was installed in Mexico as a symbol of brotherhood between the Spanish and Mexican communities in 1980 and remodeled in 2011 as part of a remodeling and maintenance program by the government of Mexico City. It is considered to be one of the most emblematic sites in the city, along with the plaza where it is located

  • The Fuente de las Cibeles is the sister piece to the one in Madrid and just as spectacular. A lovely fountain rondelet with cafes surrounding it in a lovely area of town where you can meet or just walk around
