City Hall History
The construction of the building began in 1888 and it was finally inaugurated in 1927. The clock tower was finished in 1930.

Before having its own building the power plant was installed there and it worked from 19.00 to 22.00 hrs. In 1936 an ambulant movie theater was installed in the City hall's patio.

A humorous anecdote is still told about how a farmer that was seating in the front row saw a group of horses coming from the screen towards him and stood up to scare them away!

Over the years the building has been remodeled a few times, mostly inside with the construction of more offices and the painting of murals in the interior walls depicting the area's history.
