The Old Schools

peq-0-ANTONIO(2)-t300Popularly known as Antiguas Escuelas, this building, recently rehabilitated, dates from the middle of the 20th century and was built under the direction of the Architect D. Luis Fernández Urosa. Its original name is that of Grupo Escolar Joaquín Caballero, in recognition of the personality responsible for inaugurating it since it died in an accident when it was headed to preside over the act. It currently houses the Multi-purpose Classroom and Tourist Dissemination. 

Located a few meters from the entrance to the town, this singular rectangular building (considerably elongated) has a porch that offers shelter to its main entrance and its characteristic Herrerian balls decorating the entire complex. In its exteriors we find a large patio that houses the municipal pediment, as well as a well and an oven next to the pediment, in the process of rehabilitation. 

Its interiors are wide and diaphanous, highlighting the wood paneling and the rustic aroma that has been preserved. A wardrobe that runs throughout the whole installation exposes part of the Collection of Decorative Arts and Traditional Trades that this town has, while a wooden information point with interspersed photos presides over the entrance of the installation.
