Yesterdays photograph talked about the Equality demonstration made in front of the Congreso de los Diputados (the Parliament building)... I realize that I was not telling anything about this emblematic Madrid building so...
The Congreso de los Diputados Building, has a neoclassical style. It was designed by the architect Narcisco Pascual y Colomer, and built between 1843 and 1850. It sits by the Carrera de San Jerónimo (San Jeronimo Street) downtown Madrid where before was the holly spirit convent. Just one more thing the bronze Lion you see, are two one on each side of the acess stairs to the building, is the work of the sculptor Ponciano Ponzano and made in the Maestranza de Sevilla in 1866 from the enemy canons of the 1860 war in Africa...

The Alcalá Gate, situated on Independence square, was built in 1778 under the order of the king Carlos III, as a monumental gate in the city wall to pass the road which leads to the nearby city of Alcalá de Henares, replacing an older gate which stood nearby.
The Gate work of the architect Francisco Sabatini is one of Madrid most visited monuments.
Across the central arch of the gate, you can see the church I posted some days ago.
