Lonja de Catí
The Lonja of Catí or Casa de la Vila was built between 1417 and 1437. It is the most emblematic building in the town and nowadays it houses an interpretation centre about its history. Its main floor is used to hold the meetings of the Consell de Catí. The basement was used as a prison and the ground floor, located at the same level than the Mayor Street, held the Lonja, which was the old market. Moreover, the rear of the top floor was used as a wheat warehouse.
As a whole, this building is a jewel of the Civil Gothic architecture in the Levante region. It stands out by its mullioned gothic windows, its wooden ceilings, the seven interior arches that form a huge open space and the paved floor in its noble room. In the room there are some primitive paintings and sketches that reveal some usual motives of that time. They are related to the constant sackings that the Maestrat region suffered in the Middle Ages and which constituted the main point of the majority of the debates which were organised in this room.
