About

Religious cultural center in Sant Joan

The catholic center of Sant Joan, was built in 1922 and financed by the Rector Francesc Mas Galmés, in order to house a social and culture centre. A large part of the building was originally a theatre and later a cinema, until it burnt down in 1978. This building, is popularly known as “Es Centro”.

The backside of the building, houses the rectory of Sant Joan. The facade is topped by a statue of father Lluís Jaume Vallespir, a son of Sant Joan and preacher who died a martyr in California in 1775. The statue was done by Tomás Vila, who was also the man behind the monument of Lluís Jaume in front of the parish church.
