HISTORIC BUILDING

 
 

This cultural facility takes as its setting the former La Mercè convent built in the 14th century and used in the 19th century and some of the 20th century as a military hospital. The building retains from the former architecture the square-plan structure with gardened cloister and the annexed church with bell tower, which has the more representative architectural features: Gothic arches, Renaissance choir stall with sculpted corbels and side chapels with exposed stonework. Since 1984 it has been a multidisciplinary cultural centre devoted to art, music and the humanities, while it also hosts events staged by other organisations, such as seminars, congresses and concerts.
