The Museum of Old Shoes is situated in the building which formerly belonged to the guild of artisans. Built in a Renaissance style and located on Sant Felip Neri's Square, it is adorned with a relief with a statue of Saint Mark, the patron saint of the guild of shoemakers. The museum's exhibits include various types of footwear - shoes worn by slaves, commoners, pastors, as well as the filigree shoes that were popular in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th century. It was the first museum in Spain to show the evolution of footwear. The museum also holds the collection of shoes worn by famous people like Pau Casals and Ladislao Kubal, the replica of a shoe worn by Christopher Columbus, and the largest shoe in the world as defined by the Guinness Book of Records.
