Hall of the Consell

It was built at the end of the 16th century and was located in the middle of the old town, in the old main street. Its main function was the warehouse for the procurement and sale of wheat trade which was important in medieval times. It was also used as a town house or City Hall, in its narrow halls to the Council, archive, prison and administrative charges of the time. In the 20th century it served as a school, inside a machine is preserved for mondar almonds, invented and patented by local industrialist Silvestre Ivars, which obtained great success in the 1930s.
