This House of territorial representation is a reflection of the richness, plurality and diversity of Spain. It is a place where not only are political forces of different ideologies are represented but also the diverse senses of identity that make up the reality of today’s Spain.

It is here, therefore, through words and political debate, that we have advanced in cooperation and the search for the common good between the interests of all the different territories of Spain.

Because equality of opportunity, cohesion and the power of territorial politics are today more important than ever, and this ambition must lie at the heart of all of our efforts.

We must foster dialogue even more forcefully between all the regions of the Nation because we are all needed to respond to our common challenges, as has been demonstrated during the health crisis.

The framework of this dialogue can only be understood in the Senate, as in our democracy, with a deep underlying respect for our Constitution, to reach a new time of consideration for a Spain plural and diverse in the ideas that make up all of us.

As a legislative power, we inherit the mandate of the Constitution of 1978, It is in our hands to defend the political architecture that has made the country of rights and freedoms we enjoy today possible. Elevate public debate, turn words into law and advance towards agreements and consensuses that can improve the lives of all citizens who have placed their trust in us.

And, moreover, do so honestly, with a sense of public service and transparency. That’s why this website is also a fundamental tool to open up channels of communication with citizens; to show they the work done by the Senators of this House and promote the active participation of society in parliamentary activity.

I encourage you all, through this website of the Senate, to discover the history of this House and its rich cultural and architectural heritage.

A legacy of and for all of us.

We look forward to seeing you.

Thank you for your visit.
