The Chinaman’s House

The so-called “Chinaman’s House”, built in the traditional style with a running balcony, owes its distinctive name to one of its owners, Chaoyo Wey, who set up home there in the 1960s. This was the town’s first Chinese inn, as well as a paper decorations business whose famous lanterns were used in the now-defunct “Lantern Festivity”.

Much earlier on, possibly in the 16th century, the town hall or “Casa de la Villa” was located here, before it was moved to the Clock Tower. It currently houses the social centre of the neighbourhood of Cimavilla.
