The Old Convent of St Augustine dates back to 1349, and served as the headquarters of the Bakers' Guild of Barcelona for several years. It was badly damaged during the siege of 1713-1714, and abandoned in favour of the new convent and the church of St. Augustine Nou. In the latter half of the 18th century, it was the headquarters of the Military Academy in Barcelona. Today it houses the Civic Center, Barcelona Photographic Archive and the Chocolate Museum. The medieval Gothic cloisters and a wing of the church are still standing.
