Moncloa Palace reopens its doors in a new edition of the Moncloa Open visits programme

News - 25.5.2022

This is a personal initiative of the President of the Government of Spain, Pedro Sánchez, which began in 2018 with the aim of opening the doors of the complex where the Council of Ministers meets, and which houses, among others government departments, the offices of the Presidency of the Government, the Secretary of State for Communication, and the Department of National Security.

As part of the Executive's policy of transparency, the programme's guided tour allows citizens to get to know the most emblematic areas of a complex that is the heritage of all Spaniards and which, since 1977, has also housed the official residence of the current presidents of the Government.

The visits take place on days when there are no public events scheduled in the official agenda of the complex, and last approximately 90 minutes.

The programme is open to Spanish citizens, or citizens resident in Spain. There will also be a specific quota for group visits from schools, colleges and vocational training centres. To participate in Moncloa Open you must register in advance using the form that will soon be available on the Moncloa website. The regular call for applications will be published on the Moncloa website and social networks.

Since its launch in September 2018, more than 2,000 people have visited Moncloa Palace thanks to this initiative. In the satisfaction surveys carried out after the tour, 98.5% of the participants rated the experience as "good" or "very good".
