There is a plate that provides data from 1853 to 1868 construction, describing that ran as municipal offices and ranks it as the third oldest building in the city. The receiver as well as the book of visits there are photographs of the mayors of the city, the room that functioned as a camera Municipal and Court shows the used period furniture and is beautifully decorated with paintings on naturalistic themes on the walls, finding in general well preserved interior. There is a room with contemporary regional art exhibition. In the showroom of archaeological remains: urns, washers, figurines, wall etc. But most valuable of this site by your artistic expression and antiquity are impressive Gargalo vessels and caryatids, are unique, no Museum in them had seen it.

Enjoy your visit to this Cultural Center, which is surely an enriching exposure from the artistic, archaeological and cultural field and if you consider useful this contribution presents a Click... LIFE is a journey!
