Time Out says

Spain's parliament, the Cortes, was built in 1843-50 by Narciso Pascual y Colomer on the site of a recently demolished monastery, which led to problems of space for the modern needs of the chamber, which was enlarged in the 1980s with the addition of an annex building. A classical portico gives it a suitably dignified air, but the building is best distinguished by the handsome 1860 bronze lions that guard its entrance. Tourists are welcome on the popular free Saturday guided tours. There are guided visits for individuals on Saturdays and for groups every day of the week.
