Interested in government? Visit the Madrid Congressional office! The Congreso de los Diputados is the lower cabinet of the general courts of Spain, and is located in the Palacio de los Cortes (The Palace of the Courts). At the top of the front steps, are two iconic lion sculptures from the early 1800s as well as a beautiful bronze door that is only opened on very special occasions.
