It is currently the head office of the Caja de Ahorros del Mediterráneo (Mediterranean Savings Bank). In the lobby two large format canvases, of religious subject matter, by the painter Francisco Laporta, which were originally in the chapel of the Asilo de Ancianos Desamparados (Old People's Home), are exhibited.
