Palacio de Santa Cruz
The Palacio de Santa Cruz was built in the 17th century, and has been the headquarters of Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation since 1938.
01/01/2013

King Philip IV of Spain ordered it to be built in 1629, and it was the work of the architect Juan Gómez de Mora. It was originally used as a Mayors' Hall and Court Jail. Since then it has had different uses, such as Palacio de la Audiencia, Overseas Ministry, and Ministry of State.

 

Its current structure was designed in its latest refurbishment, by architects Pedro and José María Muguruza, who incorporated an adjoining extension to the building. The then Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alberto Martín Artajo, inaugurated the new premises, with their current characteristics, in 1950.
