Cibeles Square, Madrid
Cibeles Square may be second only to the main square between the Royal Palace and the Almudena in terms of grandeur. Here, the lovely Communications Palace (which was originally the postal service headquarters, but is now Madrid's city hall) sits behind the Cibeles Fountain (which symbolizes nature and, seemingly by extension, the Real Madrid soccer team).
