The library building was also the birthplace of two writers of Viana, Francisco Navarro Villoslada (1818-1895) and Pablo Antoñana Chasco (1927-2009), and was built in the XVIth century. Renaissance style, consists of a lower body in stone, then two upper masonry and finally an attic.
After years of neglect, the municipality of Viana decided to reclaim the building, respecting the facade but emptying it inside, and since 2005 is the place where the Viana Public Library is located, occupying floors 1 (borrow area, living reading and children’s room), 2nd (study hall) and 3rd (a closed tank). The building also has a conference and projection room, for communal use (www.viana.es).
