Works began in 1922 in a place known as "Las Ventas of the Holy Spirit", reason of its current name. It’s neomudéjar style in brick seen, on a metallic structure. The decoration is work of the also architect Manuel Muñoz Monasterio, who continued with the opus of Espelius after his death, and was made with ceramic tiles. There are represented the shields of all the Spanish provinces.
