    Description:

    This is the only surviving part of the original Palace of Westminster, dating from 1097.

    On 16 October 1834, most of the Palace was destroyed by fire. Only Westminster Hall, the Jewel Tower, the crypt of St Stephen’s Chapel and the cloisters survived.

    Description:

    This is the principal façade, the East Front; originally constructed by Edward Blore and completed in 1850, it was redesigned in 1913 by Sir Aston Webb. The sculpture and gates in the front have been changed from this view.

    Blore’s best-known but least characteristic work was the completion of Buckingham Palace in 1832-1850 following the dismissal of George IV’s architect, John Nash, for extravagance. Blore was given the Buckingham Palace commission by the Office of Works because of …

    Description:

    The prestige of the Tribunal de la Justicia (Royal Chancery), which was instituted in 1505, was emphasized in 1587 by its new building (now Audiencia), with its magnificent façade designed by Francisco del Castillo. As a manifestation of royal power it made a great impression on contemporaries and became a much imitated model. The oldest parts of the present building were built around 1531. Diego de Siloé provided plans for the courtyard of the Chancillería (1546). In 1762 a stone balustrade …

    Description:

    The palace suffered a major fire, with the result that the facade facing the Plaza Alonso Cano looks like conjoined buildings, one with an Italianate Renaissance style facade (rebuilt in the 18th century) and the other with Plateresque detail. The facades facing the Plaza Bibarrambla are more uniformly Plateresque with Moorish details including some meshrebeeyeh windows. Begun in 1538, the building was meant to house part of the University and the Colegio Imperial de la Santa Cruz de la Fe, f…
