Closed for renovation work.

There are three interesting sections within this building. The chapel still keeps its original flooring with green and white tiles set diagonally and alternately. Another tile composition shows the image of San Jerónimo, whilst an oil painting pays tribute to the French engineer who invented a machine for the manufacturing of coloured fabrics. In the main entrance hall, the flooring is set in squares and diamond shapes and shows old machines used in the textile industry. In the ceremonial hall, the flooring shows an allegory of Fame, and on its balconies, a struggle between horses and elephants is represented, whilst on the ceiling, a painting of San Jerónimo can be seen.
