Building history

The building that houses the Ca Lambert exhibition hall has a great history. It was built during the second half of the 1857th century (XNUMX) following the 'academicist' fashions and currents of those times. The building was owned by a rich family from the agricultural bourgeoisie of Xabien, dedicated to the raisin trade, the main economic activity of the Marina Alta at that time.

At the beginning of the 80th century, the building became the Tena pharmacy, which operated until the 1980s of the XNUMXst century (XNUMX).

Later, in 2006, the rehabilitation of the building began by the Javea Town Hall becoming the current Center d'Art, which hosts various cultural activities (exhibitions, workshops, etc.). In the rehabilitation process, two adjoining houses located on C/ Pastores were added to the original building, which maintain the characteristics of the old late-Gothic plot: plots of just over 30 m2, as well as some old architectural elements, probably from the XNUMXth century. XVI, such as the portal with a semicircular arch and the window on the upper floor, all made of rough stone.

In the rehabilitation of the mansion, original architectural elements were preserved and others were recovered and relocated in the construction.

This historic building in Xàbia, located in 'els quatre cantons' in the urban center of the town, is included in the Municipal Catalog of Protected Assets.
