The modernization process lived by the municipality in that period let an interesting set of buildings of Regionalist style and whose authorship corresponds in many cases to architect Juan de Talavera. It is the case of the Pedro Gutiérrez and Cervantes Schools, the former police station of National Police, the former Slaughterhouse (today's House of Culture, or Casa de la Cultura) or the Oromana Hotel.

You have also to make a stop in front of the houses of the Cuesta del Águila, the Ybarra House, Villa San José or Villa Esperanza.
