Municipal Exhibition Hall (Old Town Hall)

Interior showroom


Set in Plaça de la Constitució in Sant Francesc, the Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" hosts exhibitions backed by Formentera's culture and education department and led by individual artists, collectives and cultural groups, local and far-flung.

In 2010, the Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" celebrated ten years of continuous, regular programming encompassing paintings, sculptures, photography, architecture and craftwork. The space has also showcased displays from municipal workshops, group shows, and exhibitions with a more social function: whether advocating for the environment, culture, tradition, defence of land and of the Catalan language, or sponsored by groups who work in cooperation for development.

The Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" has hosted displays from organisations and cultural foundations like Col·lectiu Antinea, Fundació Obra Social La Caixa, Obra social Sa
Nostra, Caixa de Balears, Obra social CAM, STEI-I Intersindical,

The Sala has welcomed a multitude of artists from Formentera and further afield, with particular preference for artists who draw inspiration from an admiration and respect for the island.

The Sala d'Exposicions is possible thanks to the individuals who worked in the past to build an image, a purpose and a sense of continuity for it, and to those who continue to collaborate with Formentera's culture department in the present to select and design programming.

The Sala d'Exposicions' regular yearly programming extends from January to December. Exhibition openings are typically Mondays at 8.00pm.

The gallery is open from Tuesday to Saturday, 11.00am to 2.00pm and 6.00pm to 8.00pm. It is closed Monday mornings and Sundays. Opening hours may vary according to individual exhibitions. Admission is free.
