VISIT OF THE SENATE

February 23 @12:50 pm - 2:00 pm

February 23 @ 12:50 pm 2:00 pm

We will have the chance to visit the Senate located next to the Plaza of Spain, this building was the former Augustinian convent and later the Senate Building in 1835. From 1931 to 1977 various political events caused the building to be dedicated to other functions. The building has undergone many reforms since 1820, the architect Isidro González Velázquez transformed the floor of the church into a chamber and reformed the interior with neoclassical traces. In 1882 it was again modified by Emilio Rodríguez Ayuso, who eliminated all elements of the building that remained of its former religious use and built a magnificent library and reading room. The library is absolutely spectacular .

The official guided tour will be in Spanish , however if we are the only group visiting we will be able to translate simultaneously.

Location: Calle de Bailén, 3, 28013 Madrid Metro Plaza de Espana
