Antic Convent de Sant Agustí

Gothic cloister and music venue

Antic Convent de Sant Agustí

When the Augustins were forced to move their church to the Raval after the siege of 1714, they left behind one side of a handsome Gothic cloister with intricately carved 15th-century capitals and bit of their monastery. After serving for long years as it a barracks, it now houses the Museu de la Xocolata. There's a delightful bar as well as a local civic and Cultural Centre, with special exhibitions and other activities; it's also a frequent venue for concerts.
