The first flight of stairs leads to a spacious room. If we continue up, now for a covered courtyard, you reach the first floor, where the main bedrooms of the house.
We proceeded to a careful restoration of the house with furniture and items acquired from antiquarian or ruined churches of the region, thus avoiding their disappearance.
In the basement, of Jewish origin as indicated by water pipes, there is the wine cellar, with two wells that were used for the conservation of oil and other products of the land, and the stable. There is also a corridor, currently boarded up, which connected with the church of Sant Josep. On the back of the house stands the courtyard, enclosed by thick stone walls of the building and by the wall, through which you reach the outer area of the river, known as Lo Portalet.
Painted ceilings, frames and coffered ceilings have been recovered because of the intervention of master craftsmen as the carpenter Ton Camarasa and the painter Àngel Soldevila. Mosaics and wooden floors originating have been preserved in the different rooms. Noteworthy, the room with a murano mirror, the dining room with its solid wood fireplace, or the library with over a thousand volumes, many of them bound in parchment, coming from the Franciscan monastery of Sant Domènec and the convent Avellanes.
