The Franciscan monastery is one of the town's oldest buildings. It was built amid 1716-1736. The Franciscan monks arrived in the town in the 16th century and they built a real complex, made up of a church and monastery, which they used until 1789, when both were passed over to the Piarists' order, which set up a school in the monastery. The church was used until 1911, year when it was demolished. In 1909 the monastery was undertaken by the local administration, which founded an academy of music. In the present the building lodges the Popular Art School. In the monastery's wall a wandering army can be seen, from the town siege period, in 1849.
