Cortes, which is the Spanish Parliament, traces its history back to the 11th century when it was no more than a gathering place of clergymen and noblemen who acted as advisors to the King. Today, the Palacio de las Cortes is the place where the Lower House of the Parliament is seated. This Madrid building is an impressive structure, which boasts a neoclassical façade and beautiful interiors. It has been witness to several historic events including an infamous coup attempt in 1981. The building is a major tourist attraction of the city and finds itself on everyone's must-see list.
- Admire the palatial façade of the Palacio de las Cortes, in Madrid, which has a magnificent facade reminiscent of a palace with a six-pillared porch and a pediment that bears statues depicting noble ideals.
- Explore the interiors of this most-visited Madrid building and view a famous tapestry with the national emblem, sculptures, and paintings.
- Visit the Conference Room, which boasts Elizabethan-style decorations, with a beautifully-adorned table in the centre and paintings and busts of politicians in the vault.
You can get there using the public transportation system of Madrid. Gran Via is a major transport point in the vicinity and Metro services operate there. The Cortes is located opposite Plaza de las Cortes with the subway M1 linking it to the rest of the city. If travelling by train, Sol is the place to get off at and then you can walk or hire a taxi to take you to your destination. You also have the option of taking a taxi straight to the area. Availing the services of a car rental is best avoided.
