The Senado is the name of the upper chamber of the Spanish Cortes Generales, and the place where it meets. There are 250 senators, most of whom are elected every four years, at general elections, four from each province. A small number of senators are also elected by the autonomous governments. The Senado's functions include discussing, approving, and suggesting amendments to legislation passed by the Congreso de los Diputados and supervising the compensation fund for the autonomous regions.
