My wife and I went to the Thyssen Museum and then took a walk that passed the Congreso de los Diputados. We stopped to admire the wonderful architecture of the building and also admired the statues of the two lions beside the facade.

The Congreso de los Diputados has a very impressive facade. It has beautiful Corinthian columns and the statues of two lions by the steps. This is truly a great landmark building.
