Convent de Sant Francesc remodeled by architect David Closes is a church located in Santpedor, Spain. Built between 1721 and 1729 by Franciscan priests the church was long abandoned and its convent complex was demolished in 2000. The church renovation began in 2003 and the original building that stood in ruins was enhanced with some modern elements yet the traces of time and wear were preserved as part of the building’s history. The church was turned into an auditorium, cultural space while the upper levels of the chapels are to be turned into a historical archive.
