Convent dels Mínims


The town hall is housed in this 17th-century baroque convent, confiscated from the Minims in the 19th century. You can generally wander in any time to admire the somewhat neglected cloister. One block west is a beautiful example of a waymarking cross, the 1585 Renaissance Creu dels Morts (Cross of the Dead).
