The Municipal Granary

Home > Cultural Resources > The Municipal Granary

Open in case of temporary exhibitions.

The "Architecture of the Grain" is represented in two landmark buildings in Alhama: The House of La Tercia and the "Pósito Municipal" or Muncipal Barn.

The Pósito Municipal (Municipal Barn) is an 18th century building located in the old Calle del Pósito, now known as Calle Fulgencio Cerón Cava, and its main function was to regulate trade in cereals, but it also was used for loans of public funds.

The building has a simple structure with a rectangular layout and two floors. The materials used were brick and maçonery to finish the different sections. The ground floor has a unique structure, as the room is covered with groin vaults, thus dividing the space into small areas aimed at housing exhibitions. The top floor, which has more light is joined by a number of pillars, although the feeling now is one of a unitary space kept for housing the different temporary exhibitions which are held in Alhama. The granary was restored in 2006 to be used as an Exhibition Centre, so this emblematic building has been brought back to life.
