  • The Congress of Deputies is located in Madrid, the capital of Spain. It's not exactly a tourist attraction, but your building is quite beautiful.

  • Neoclassical style building. It is the headquarters of the Spanish Parliament. At this moment, I would say, clueless, contested... They don't look in the interest of the country.

  • The building, Palacio de las Cortes, has a neoclassical style. It was designed by Narciso Pascual Colomer, and built between 1843 and 1850. It sits by the Carrera de San Jerónimo, in Madrid. The relief on the facade by sculptor Ponciano Ponzano centers on a sculpture of Spain embracing the constitutional state, represented by a woman with her arm around a young girl. Surrounding the pair are figures that represent in allegorical form Justice and Peace, Science, Agriculture, Fine Arts, Navigation, Industry, Commerce and so on. Ponzano also executed two bronze lions for the building's access stairway in a more realistic manner.
  • An imposing neo-classical building overlooking the small street that leads to the neptune fountain. It's a nice sight while walking around the centre.
