You can find:
A renaissance building constructed in the mid-16th century. It is a two-story building cut in ashlar stone, with a porch and series of five arches (four on the façade and one on the interior) resting on columns and Tuscan pilasters. Originally, the granary building was an institution responsible for regulating grain supply, becoming over the years a seed store. At the end of the 18th century, it ceased to have its original purpose, being used since the mid-nineteenth (mid-19th) century as a school of public instruction.
