This historic building was designed to serve as oven, and it is one of the oldest preserved buildings within the Citadel. It dates from the late 16th century and was completed in 1644. This former oven was where food was roasted and cooked. Today it hosts art exhibitions and avant-garde installations.
It has a teardrop-shaped plan and a solid-brick dome, with a chimney in its centre. The building is made of stone and brick. The floor is paved with cobblestones from Ezcaba. The floor is at zero ground level and has two access doors. The building has temperature and humidity control systems, plus a radio frequency fire and/or smoke detection system.
