This building dates right back to the 16th Century. It is over three floors, and arranged around the stairwell. The entrance to the building is emphasized by a door with half-point arc. Inside the building the hallway is a large area consisting of large bays interconnected by pointed arches.

This building is located in Calle Labradores street, which dates back to the 16th century. When inside visitors are able to tour the premises of the Municipal Archive and view the documental remains. Unfortunately a number of documents prior to the 17th century were destroyed in a fire which was caused when it was bombarded by the Frnch Navt in 1691.
