The architectonic composition of the Municipal Library results from the opening of Cardeal Saraiva Street, in the end of the first quarter of century XX, which divided in two the building of the old Hospital of Mercy, (whose reconstruction was concluded in 1731), destroying thus the curious monastery of the XVIII century and a little of the medieval wall.
Connected to a fragment of the wall, there is an access to the battlement from the large porch balcony turned to the Square of Picota, still holding in the interior a stairway of baroque characteristics.
In 1993 extensive general reformation works were concluded to the running of the services of the Municipal Library.
