The Palacio de Cibeles, formerly the Palacio de Comunicaciones until 2011, is a palace located on the Plaza de Cibeles. Over the years the palace and fountain have become symbolic monuments of the city. Originally the headquarter of the postal service, this impressive building was home to the Postal and Telegraphic Museum until 2007 when the building became the Madrid City Hall. It was declared Bien de Interés Cultural in 1993.
