This stupendous Theresian building was used for storing and giving out grain to miners till 1912. It is now a monument of national significance.

Nowadays it hosts an art gallery, a military museum and the municipal library Mestna knjižnica in čitalnica Idrija. Its vaulted underpass connects the old square with the new one. On the facade facing the Trg sv. Ahacija Square there are memorial plaques dedicated to people of great  importance for the history of Idrija (Jožef Mrak , Marko Vincenc Lipold, Balthasar Hacquet , Franc Anton SteinbergIvanka Ferjančič  and Henrik Freyer).

The large one-storey building that was used as a granary was built in Baroque style in the old town core in 1764. The grain and other supplies stored inside the building were used as part of the wages paid to miners.
